I think it's a mistake to count Markov as a building block. He's an older player with a history of injury problems. We can't count on him being part of the future.

This is not a reflection on him or his talents. He's been a great player for us but we've got to accept that he's a huge injury risk and planning the future with him in mind would be a grave mistake. Anything he provides for us should be considered a bonus. If he produces... great. But we shouldn't be expecting anything from him.
