If anybody does not agree with this, please explain to me how getting a tendon cut by a skate is being injury-prone. Please do also tell me how being misdiagnosed and being brought back too early is being injury prone. I'd love to hear you guys spin this one off.

I do agree that Markov's value is currently very low, but that's due more to uncertainties related to his play level than worries about injury.
I dunno Turtleneck, I agree to an extent...but if you miss lots of time than until you come back for a long period of time that injury risk is there IMO.

I'm excited about Markov potentially playing top 4 minutes next season. Don't know what will happen, but I'm willing to wait and find out.
