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.
The age doesn't concern me that much since defenceman like him tend to play well into their late 30s. But you're absolutely right in that, right now we can't count on Markov being a key piece of the puzzle. We should have a better idea where he stands by the end of this season.
