All of this appears to coincide with the beginning of his contractual negotiations, which reportedly began about a week or so ago. There is a lot of dirty laundry that gets typically thrown around by management as part of any negotiation strategy to gain an advantage, keep the price low, secure a more reasonable term. Stuff that agents can deal with objectively as part of the process of arriving at a deal and which agents usually filter when relaying the status of talks to their clients.

When you're both acting as agent and client, there is no buffer -- Markov acting as his own agent may be taking some of the process a little personally and maybe ... it's creeping into his game right now.

Just random speculation, since he was quite dominant not too long ago. Others might point to the 2nd half of the season syndrome, just like last year when he ran out of gas after a quality start.
Totally agree with your analysis and we have a coach who doesn't give him some days off so his slide will only continue. The good news is we have a GM that will probably give him a 3 year $12 million dollar contract instead of trading him for a tier 1 prospect plus a second round pick which I am sure we would get if we don't keep exposing him to fast top tier forwards on a nightly basis.

...if you need an assistant coach to intimidate the midgets in practice, I'm 6'7, 251 lbs (got a bit fatter lately), deep Baritone voice, can yell really loud, and, from living just outside Montreal for a few years, can fake a pretty decent Francophone accent...

...we'd have to start the first practice by wading through the midgets like King Kong vs Godzilla...

no coach will make this team bigger
no coach will make gionta hit the net
no coach will make DD, gionta,breire,gally,beef bouillon, or any other guy 4 feet grow
no coach will make any of our Hamilton dudes, come up and be stars over night

face it this team is MB's way, and until that happens that he decides to get a top six guy that is over 4 feet and is better the all the above combined, we suck
