Agreed, in the beginning the KHL benefitted him, because he was coming in with games under his belt, while others didn't have a training camp. He was ahead of them in the beginning, but coach Therrien decided to play him at 25minutes a night in all situations, despite the fact he hasn't played significant minutes in three freaking years. He's not 25 yrs old, of course he's going to tire. I expect Markov will be a great contributor next year, providing his minutes are restricted just a bit. This year, they should have been around 20minutes a night once the season wore on.
