They say his knee is fine, and I am fine with that answer. History has shown over the past 2 seasons that he has had problems with it. While every player is susceptible to having a knee injury, players who have had them previously are more at risk than those who have not had them. The same has been argued with concussions, so because Crosby has had concussion problems he is more likely than say Tyler Kennedy to receiving one.
Doctors say to players all the time for most injuries that they will make a full recovery. While health wise they can, they are hardly ever the same after a serious or multiple serious injuries. More often than not they are not as dominant or a "step behind" who they used to be, even after rehab and getting back in the swing of things.
Markov brings a lot to our team, and we are lucky to have him. He's always been an continues to be an amazing player. He deserves all the props he can get for working through the nightmare of the past 2 seasons, and still being one of the best defenceman in the league.
