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?
I don't think it's just Markov that's been poor. The whole team has looked bad during that stretch. Even our Norris candidate took some poor decisions and looked bad at times.
