Seriously, we've heard it all, Plekanec sucks and should get traded because he's not a real #1, DD is the blamed for every bad thing, PK not even top 30 and barely top 60, Price stinks, Eller just 3rd line potential, Markov worse than Weber, MaxPac a disappointment despite a career high pace...

All this in a year where we are fighting for top seed in the division, when most didn't even expect us to make the POs. It's been a lame year..
The inability around here to look at the entire season as a whole instead of focusing on the last 5 (or worse yet, 1) game is just remarkable.

Yes, Markov has been poor (defensively at least, he's still producing points) since Emelin went down. He's no longer a guy you want carrying a plug like Boullion, especially when often given first pairing minutes, but no, that doesn't mean he was "carried" by Emelin, it means they were a good fit together, much as Komisarek once was. And yes, it's very likely he's tired considering how much he has been used. But why can't we criticize a player without completely ignoring everything they have done over the past year?
