That would not have been the case if he was still considered a superstar defenseman in a league that is desperately trying to hold on to their previously locked-out russian players by coercion or by throwing millions at them
Markov played for Vityaz because of his relationships with the people in that organization. Not because he isn't a top Defenseman. What a misinformed post.
