And I look for more injuries frankly simply because he's played little hockey the last few years.
Do you think he set out trying to miss most of the last 2 years? Sounds like a true couch potato quote. "...athlete X is just happy being home collecting a paycheque with his bum knee..."

I'm pretty sure that being out hurts markov more than it hurts the team, the Gm, the players or the fans...the guy is one of the top 1% of pro hockey players but he spent 23 prime years on the sidelines, that's something no amount of money can replace.
