@#$%ing Staal. I always worry about crap like this when there is a blowout, on a nothing play in the same corner as last year. Markov punching the boards might just be a frustration move cause he went through a major injury before. I really hope he isn't hurt because he just started getting back into game form. Cross your fingers and hope it's nothing serious, but if it is then he will get the "glass" label on him and nobody will offer him big $$$.
I had the same reaction a lot of people had to him punching the boards, I felt like he knew it was serious and he was just ****ing pissed that his knee was re-injured. I hope hope hope I/we are reading too much into that punch though and he was just hurt and we can get some good news. Ecstatic about the win and the game but man, we were rolling, PP coming back to life, I don't want to lose Markov again. I'll be checking this thread frequently.
After tonight, i'm not willing to give him an extension. He's became to much of an injury prone player!
We thought that for Bouillon. 81 games last year. You know that the day we decide not to keep him, he'll end up playing 82 games with his new team. Might as well keep him....but might as well TRY to add the fact that his healthy is a question mark in the negotiations to try to have him at a little less that we would have given him. Now, remains to be seen if every other team will be shy giving it to him....
