Looks to me Markov returns Wednesday. Martin won't confirm, but Cammy is confident and said so and the habs often like to keep big news a secret.

Spacek held everything together. He was probably the best all around defenseman for us in that winning stretch. Then he went down and things started to spiral from there.

With Spacek, Campoli and Markov returning this will be a much, much stronger hockey club. I think people will be quite surprised at the difference those guys will make not only to solidify the D, but help the offense and the PP as well.

Good news about Campoli. He could be 7-14 days away.
Nice to hear Campoli is getting closer. With Markov about to return and Campoli hopefully not too far away, not only does that help our D but it helps Hamilton as well since St-Denis should be returned soon enough and when Campoli comes back maybe Diaz gets sent down as well.

Our jump up the standings and our stagnation are pretty much linked to Spacek being on and off the roster.

He played very good so far, when he was there.

We're playing for .500. I'm thinking that if we remain in view of 8th place, making the playoffs with an healthy D shouldn't be too hard.

Don't take people for fools; Gill will not be put in the stand s no matter how had his game would be or how good our prospects are..

I assume we won't find out for certain until Wednesday, I think he'll be a game time decision.

Well if an injured player is praticing on a powerplay that is abysimal, this means he'll probably play. I can't see Martin practicing the powerplay with a guy that won't play when the powerplay sucks that much.

Martin ruled him out for the West coast trip and I'd be surprised if that changes, although there seems to be alot of rumors that he could play on Wednesday

My guess is the Habs will take the same cautious approach they've taken so far and hold him out of game action until they're back from the west coast.

He said Markov wont return before the trip.
Also stated that no decision was made in regards to Markov returning for Wednesdays game.

Yes...either way, I couldn't care less

Whether he's back this wednesday or next wednesday, the good news is he's close to coming back.

I care, mostly because I lack zero patience.
Please come back Wednesday.

lol i'm the same way actually...but at this point, it seems like so long since i've seen him play, waiting another 2-3-4 games, means little to me at this point.

I would just love to see this team at full capacity for an extended period of time and by full capacity, i mean an intact top 9 & top 4.

My patience is directly proportional to our success. So yeah, right about now I'm pretty antsy to have the guy back.

I realized my comment actually makes no sense, if I lack zero patience, doesn't that mean I have patience?... off-topic though.

But yeah, I agree with you. But seeing the powerplay struggling makes me want to see Markov return ASAP.

But I fully agree, I just cant wait to see what a healthy line up really looks like. Although I doubt we ever do see it this season.

People forget this team might be at .500 but 4 of the 6 regular D-men are out. Having half of them back in 2 weeks is huge. Just keep the head above water for the time being.

Ask the bruins if they would be good without say Chara, Seidenberg, Ference and Corvo. Doubt it.

Great news all around today. Although I expect Markov to come back Saturday at the earliest. Thursday best-case scenario. Wouldn't play him on back-to-back nights...

Play him 3rd pairing with Emelin and PP time.

We need him back badly. The PP is killing this team.

Andrei Markov could be back

Francois Gagnon said that if Markov proves hes ready in their next full practice, he could be in any of the three road games on this California trip.

Personally i would dress him as a 7th d-men and let him be used on the pp.
