If Markov tried to hide the injury it would be one thing, but we all knew Markov tore his ACL, at the time he was extended he was under medical supervision. At the time he still had to get medical approval to play hockey. What, do you think Markov or his agent paid off the Habs medical staff to downplay his injury? We are talking a common sports injury and an internal one, the only way Markov could possibly downplay that is by doctoring his own MRIs.

Nobody ever said he faked structural damage. But I remember some speculation by his own fans that he came back too early from the first ACL surgery. You can't have it both ways.

In no way am accusing Markov of faking structural damage. No way.
