RDS reports Markov as started skating!!! Is he rushing himself because it's his last year of his contract or is he ready?
What do you guys think?
How can you not love this guy?? Markov should be our team captain....he bleeds Bleu, Blanc et Rouge!!!! He might be a quiet guy, but he's a top 5 defencemen in the NHL because of the way he plays the game.
I hope everything goes well, I hope he has no setbacks in his rehab and I hope he is ready for the 1st game of the season and I also hope the Habs sign him to a longterm deal!!!
I'm sure the trainers won't rush him back regardless of how far ahead of schedule Markov is in his rehab. The team should be able to survive for 10 games or so on the backs of Subban, Hamrlik, Spacek, Gill, Gorges and O'Byrne. I'd rather they make sure the knee is as strong as possible so he doesn't wind up missing more time later on in the season.
