With a healthy Markov that number jumps to 43% with 143 wins in 349 games. The Canadiens also lost close to 60% of their games in regulation without Markov (35 of 61) while losing only 115 of 349 games for only 33% of games he starts."

This only includes from 2006 to his knee injury in playoffs versus Pittsburgh lol... This does not include last two years.
Im not sure how winning 43% of our games with Markov would make us a "Stanley Cup contender" like mentionned in that quote... louzy stats analysis if you ask me.
