I don't think his leg holing up for 82 games is an issue. ACL surgery if they heal well, should be just like new. Guys like Malkin Wisniewski Galchenyuk have come back and played some of their best hockey after ACL surgery.

This year's 48 games is tougher than next year's 82 as there will be more off days between games and less condensed schedule. Playing huge minutes and recovery time may be Markov's biggest problem.
