A lot of people considered Markov "injury prone" or "fragile", and used that to predict his inevitable and rapid decline.
I never felt that way simply because I remember all too well a young and promising Hab defenseman who broke a leg twice quite early in his career. Most assumed his career was done, but he surprised and went on to have a pretty decent run over the years. For those who don't know the story, it was Serge Savard, arguably the best D man who ever played in Montreal.
