I find talking about Markov brings out the crazy in some irrational fans...some seem to believe that he is "happy" being hurt and on the sidelines "earning his millions". Anyone with half a barin knows that the biggest pain for a pro athlete is being injured in their prime and not being able to do what they do best and what they gew up doing. The millions are great but a year of a pro athlete's prime is something they will never get back.
Vityaz has the lowest budget in the KHL...the "Markov did this for the money" accusation is the most insane yet.
