The guy is really getting a lot of **** for nothing. People wanting Tinordi, Weber and Kaberle over him for ES, LOL! Manage his minutes, fine, but seriously think about this team without Markov. Remember when PK was unsigned? What were the stories coming out of the Habs locker room? "Markov proving doubters wrong." Sure he's slowed, but the talent is there. It's just fatigue. It's not like he's inherently a worse player outside of that at this point in his first pro hockey (or any hockey) since 2 years of rehab!!
Defensively he's not strong anymore. I really wish Therrien did not use him so much this year as this is the most hockey Markov has played in years.
