I find it really curious that Markov was on the ice with Spacek and the Habs trainor yesterday. Seriously, it would be such a boost to this team if he were to be game ready if the Habs make it into the post-season.

No, they made it clear that he wouldn't be back this year, playoffs included.

There was a quote saying the medical team denied Marky's request to play this playoffs.

Pretty sure it's been made clear by his agent and medical staff, that he's not coming back at all this year, including the playoffs.

Thanks. I just found it odd that he was on the ice yesterday. However, the fact that Markov was on the ice yesterday appears to show that the Habs are at least considering his request.

That's not what it means at all.

It means he's progressing normally by doing a light skate 4 months after injury.

It means he's a hockey player by trade, so he probably wants to start skating lightly as soon as he can, even if real game action isn't on the horizon. It's also probably good for his morale to be around the team when he can be.

Don't need to be a MD to figure that out

Skating is normally a part of every player's rehab process. That knee needs to be strengthened slowly.

Markov himself said he really wanted to play in the playoffs if we got far enough but his doctors wouldn't allow it. I'm no doctor but I'm not sure I would either!

OK, maybe I jumped the gun, but it's more like 5 months.

Does Markov really need to come to Montreal, wearing his Habs practice equipment, to do a light skate?

His surgery took place on December 8th, so it hasn't even been 4 months yet.

No way I want to see Markov back on the ice until he has been given the fullest amount of time possible to re-hab.

I would like to see him back next year on a 1-year contract. (I don't know if I'd sign him for more than a year unless he can show that he is capable).

You have to see if his paper legs can carry him through an 82-game season before signing him for 3-years or more.

I think it also has to do with him preparing for the free agent period. Many teams would stay away from him if they thought he hadn't laced it up for conditioning for an extended period of time. This way, he gets the training and medical care of the Habs staff and management can easily evaluate his recovery for a potential contract extension.

I'd keep Markov out for the year, regardless of how far we get. I think he came back too soon from his last injury and that's why he got injured again.

He'll be back and will, lord willing, have a good full year with the Habs and return to his former glory.

This could be evalulated easily after the playoffs.

Markov has been in Montreal every day. He lives here and he has his rehab here.

If it momentarily relieves his sense of inadequacy over not being able to play, why not? It may help him feel part of the team again if he dresses like his teammates instead of like a cripple.

You will see Markov back for the 2nd round if the habs make it that far, if he was just out for a skate he's be in a track suit like some of the other guys you see rehabbing. The fact that he was in full gear suggest to me that he was trying to see how far he might be away from a return. That's just my opinion though

I don't believe he will be back however I find it really strange to skate in full gear. Very rare to see guys take a light skate in all gear, even other injuries this year we saw guys out skating in wind breakers.

i think the fact he was in full gear means that he wants to rehabilitate his leg while wearing the same equipment he will during a game, thus moving the way he would within a game while dressed up exactly as he would be in a game. Its also protection against a stray puck or someone falling on him, etc.
