I hope he isn't seriously injured, for 3 reasons:

1) it could effect his future in hockey

2) it could be a major set back to the season

3) it could be a major set back to my hockey pool

If I ever read the words "hockey pool" in this thread - I'll go berserk .....

Who the hell cares about how Markov's injury affects your chances to win 100 dollars ???

Thanks guys...I say a replay but it was from far so I couldn't see exactly where on the foot. If the front, then no Achillies.

My bad.

I have already come to accept that Markov is out for 2+months.

All of this because of a phantom goalie interference call.

Unbelievable.

Also - If I were a doctor and facing a deep cut in that area I would most likely ask for surgery in order to properly clean the lesion and make sure that severed tendons and or bones are properly reattached. There might also have been nerves or blood vessels cut and you want surgery for those too.

Markov was able to skate for a bit (unlike Lang last year) so from a mechanical point of view the cut tendons were not vital for his posture, like an achilles tendon is.

My point - while I don't have any proof of what happened, I allow myself to hope it's not something major - IMO it will take at least a few weeks of inactivity though.
Man I hope you're right.

Even if Markov is out 3-4 months he'll be back for playoffs which is most important. Team might have more trouble making them though lol.

So you think we won't carry a 7th D-man??

You think like me. That stupid call set off the chain of events.

The reason it was listed last is because it is the least of my worries. I am more worried about how this will effect Markov and his teammates.

2 months would be very optimistic.

I'm thinking more 4 months at the least.

Markov stayed the whole night at the hospital, I heard on CKAC that he had a surgery.

It doesn't look good at all.

Let's wait on the reports but if that's the case then Gainey has no choice but to make a move and get an extra D in here,not Weber or Subban

Huge blow to the team if he is out for 2 months +, but on the flip side, it's a great opportunity for Weber to establish himself in a top 6 role and as PP QB.

Even with Markov in the line-up last night, our 2nd wave PP D did not look too good(although it was Gorges who took the shot that was eventually tipped by Metropolit).

Oh well, if Markov is indeed out for a long period of time, it will hopefully just bring the team closer together and faster. Everybody will have to roll up their sleeves to make up for him missing. I think this year we have a lot of NHL quality defenceman to fill in the holes, but you just can't replace an Andrei Markov. If one of the young guys in Hamilton get the chance to play (Carle, Subban or Weber), hopefully they can take advantage of it and establish themselves as regulars in the NHL. It would only help us for the future having these guys NHL ready in case anything else happens along the way.

Thank god that O'Byrne seems to be a force out there this year. Spacek can at least start the rush and can play good defence, which is something we didn't have last year when Markov went down. Also having Hammer back soon (hopefully) will also help. We'll just have to plug the holes till he gets back.

If Markov is out for a long time, the Habs are doomed. I am being serious and not overreacting.

Gill and Mara will absolutely cost the Habs games. They are slow, cannot handle the puck and will be put through the shredder by shifty teams.

Those guys will also be counted on to log more minutes. Spacek also lost a bunch of races to the puck last night... not a good sign.

I feel a lot safer having Spacek as opposed to Komisarek with Markov, just hoping for this not to be true...

It's October 2nd and most teams haven't even played yet. I can't see any team trading a top 4 defenceman for at least another month, if not two.

I agree except that it was the 1st game of the season, most of the players looked really rusty and somewhat lost.

New coach new team pretty much its going to take time.

That being said I do think Markov being out for a while is going to hurt however if Carey Price can continue to play like he did lastnight and this team rolls 4 lines we still can be in the hunt for a playoff spot come spring.

JG looked good on D lastnight and we were missing Hammer still, Spacek looks like he still needs to shake off rust but he would have been the perfect player last year to have around when Markov went down.

Its always doom and gloom in habs land, its the 1st game of the season, every team has injuries, thats why BG brought in guy like Spacek.

i think that`s what upsets me the most...phantom call, not only do the Leafs score, but we lose Markov

Different year, same story in Toronto

I`ve come to accept that we won`t see him for awhile...

sigh

It's almost as if the hockey gods have been punishing us for a ridiculously healthy first 75 games of the 2007-08 season. Just before the playoffs that year: Traitor, Koivu and Bouillon went down and it's been one key player suffering injuries after another since the start of 2008-09.

Evil,

Gill and Mara stunk when you could clutch and grab. They have been absolutely brutal since the post-Lockout.

Gill was along for the ride last year in Pittsburgh, especially since the Pens own the puck more than most teams. Gill was abused multiple times last year and it cost the Pens.

I never understood why Gainey signed these guys. He was reacting to the loss of Komisarek and settled for bargain basement. He may not have had a choice but ...

Guys, this is going to be till xmas at the least IMO.

We're going to need to call up a D from Hamilton...

Hello Weber. (# 7)

Now, at some point, one of the other D will get hampered with probably a minor injury.

Hello Carle. (# 8)

Now we are left with PK Subban if anyone else is get injured?? He is currently our # 9.

It's not an impossible scenario... but PK is one step closer to lacing it up.

This could be the year of PK!

Oh my...

Without Markov we are looking at a bottom 5 finish.

Season just started and it is already over.

You just can't expect to be fine when you loose you're MVP that is also one of the top5 defensemen in the entire game.

Seriously, before he got injured yesterday, Markov was the best player on both side of the ice, and by a good margin. I hope he will start getting the praise he deserve.

It will hurt us a lot if we indeed loose him for an extended period of time. Then again, I'm more confident having guys like Mara and Spacek to take the load rather then depending on Traitor and Bouillon.

By the way, I missed Hamrlik yesterday. When that guy is playing, he seems like all of our D-corps play better with better confidence.

Hope he can be back for tomorrow if Markov is down.

Most of the people here should stop making assumptions on how long Markov will be out. Nobody knows about the seriousness of his injury, so stop speculating. He might be out 2 weeks, 2 months, the season, we don't know yet. But stop being such negative pansies. We have no idea what he had. The fact he supposedly had surgery doesn't change anything. I once had ankle surgery and was back playing soccer 2 weeks after. Sure I'm no pro athlete, but surgery does not mean a big absence.

So everybody needs to calm down a little bit with that whole pessimistic, emo BS.
