Must admit that it's quite disappointing.
Markov actually plays quite defensively on even strength nowadays. I noticed this in his KHL play too, he doesn't have the legs to rush with the puck so he focuses on what he's still good at, positioning himself to intercept plays and starting attacks with long passes. While he's slowed down recently, the stats don't tell the whole story, he's been quite good especially when paired with the Plekanec line, who also don't have as many points as they should because Bourque can't finish and Gionta is a black hole.
