if this is another season long injury, I AM DONE with him! Please don't re- sign him. The guy is more injury prone than Koivu. When this guy gets hurt, he really gets hurt. He's always been a favourite, but I can't see them keeping him if he's this injury prone.
I'm sorry, but that just doesn't cut it. The guy was 2 gears slower, and definitely not doing great as far as his balance is concerned.
As for those blaming Staal, listen up. I hate Staal. But Markov's play lately does nothing to make me feel good.
I was a huge fan of the "keep Markov, never trade him" idea, but after seeing how injury prone he's become, I might re-think the issue. What Staal did happens dozens of times a game. You have to think Markov is still very fragile.
