Doesn't say much for last season seeing how he burned out after 20ish games. But as I said last year, I'm not going to hold it against him seeing how he played so little hockey over the past 3years and had some games in the KHL.
I was fully expecting Markov to get back to playing the way he is. He's just too good of player to not adapt and improve.

But no doubt Markov benefits more from PK than vice versa.
