I heard gainey say, I'm paraphrasing,' Andrei at times plays excellent hockey but at other times doesn't play at that level. Getting him to play at that level more consistently is part of Andrei's development. I see Markov as a similar D man to Schneider, and he continued developing his game as a veteran. I don't think we can assume a whole lot at this point. Gainey knows how much the team needs him, he just doesn't quite get what makes the guy tick,yet.
