That's not even alluding to a potential injury to Price.
Markov proved many times that it's not. Markov at 70% was making us win more at the end of last season. He's our MVP, just for fun go get our stats with and without Markov over the last 8 years and you will notice that we were nearly never in the playoffs without him and nearly always in the playoffs with him. That's why Gauthier signed him back despite a serious injury.
