I just have a bad feeling it will happen. The guy has no luck what so ever.

Why Andrei, why? I can't understand why he signed for that joke of a team.

Try to look at it this way...the next time Vityaz decides to goon it up, which side would you prefer Markov to be on?

Most likely because nobody else was willing to gamble with his insurance cost.

Because he wants to be in Moscow and CSKA and Dynamo have already made big lockout signings, Atlant probably didn't want to go in that direction, and Spartak has no money.

Good point, but it just feels wrong, one of my favourite players playing for one of the teams I hate the most (they're neck and neck with Bruins, Red Wings and KAC Klagenfurt).

This is a good thing for him. He needs to play more than anyone else on the habs roster.

im gonna go ahead and say good for him

the guy needs to play games for f sake

would you rather have him idling until this lockout resolves? theres only so much exhibition games and off-ice can do in terms of rehabilitation when it comes to serious injury. you dont regain your sychronism or confidence.

The routine for an NHL player varies greatly in the case of a long-term injury, and the only way to get back on track is to play games at a competitive level. The khl is perfect for Marky right now. Least we can say is that there's muscle on his team, hehe.

granted the risk of injury is always there. The guy himself knows it.

Do you think HE is scared?

In Soviet Russia no emotion shows you!

What a ****in' goon.

Maybe he'll make that team respectable ? Not bloody likely, but you just know no one is going to **** with him. He'll develop a bad ass attitude and return to the NHL having a chip on his shoulder where the habs are lacking a team full of goons to back him up.

The guy had TWO injuries in his freaking career, one of them (2nd time around) being a freak accident, and he's plagued? Please...

Would you rather he missed yet another year of action?
He'll get to play a lot of minutes there, without much pressure, and has plenty to teammates to protect him. It's good.

If he blows his knee yet again, then he'd probably have blown it in the NHL anyways.
If he does go through those injuries this year, at least it should make Bergevin plan accordingly.

This is a good thing.

This lockout is a blessing in disguise for Markov. Now he can get used to playing with his fixed knee, shake off any rust and be ready for the NHL season, whenever that may come.
