Bad break for you guys.

I know Paul Gaustad had a similar injury to this and only missed about 2 months, but the sounds of it this is a bit more severe then his was

No doubt, this is a massive loss. Markov is one of the top-10, if not top-5 defenders in the league. However, as I mentioned in another thread, this is practically a new team with seven new faces. We do not know how they will handle adversity. They could fold like last season's team, maintain the fort, or win more than they lose.

In passing, I think this d corps is better than last years.

Bob McKenzie just said that Brisebois's services have been offered up to the habs.

Its not doom and gloom after one game. Its losing your number one defensemen for 60 games/ 4 months; and a top 5 one in the league at that.

I think our record without him speaks for itself.

of course is called common sense.

anyway like Voltaire said: "common sense is not so common"

for thoses thinking it's all whining, just look at the TO game tapes...

the only time we looked decent defensively was when Markov was on the ice... and that was against the Leafs...


sure, a Hamrlik/Spacec may be a good option for a first pair, but still, losing your best player for such a long period is a huge blow out...

So what, don't worry about things you can't control.

The Koivu, Kovalev and Komisarek team was horrible without Markov. However, this team's record without Markov is 0-0-0 right now.

We'll see how things go from here. I think Jaro Spacek can step up to the plate and contribute. Obviously it's going to hurt, but it won't be as bad as people think. I remember on July 1st one of the first things that came to my mind was that having Spacek might come in handy if Markov got hurt again.

from the replays and from what everybody has been saying i understand it was the dorsum (top) of the foot that was lacerated (cut). If a tendon repair was necessary, we are looking at 2-3 weeks healing for the incision and 6-8 weeks for the tendon to heal adequately. The tendons on the dorsum of the foot are not that active in skating so i have an optimistic view of this, and my guess would be 8 weeks.

from a personnel stand point. i think that this will be a litmus test for the character of this team. That is what Bob Gainey worked on this summer; bringing in players who can face adversity. Everybody will need to step up, and rookies (weber or carle or even P.K.) will have to prove themselves.

If we can make it at .500 until Markov comes back we will be a serious playoff contender when he returns.

go habs go

Just listened to the Gorges clip about Markov on Habs I/O. I don't know if devastated is the word for how he sounds, but it's close. Hopefully the team can get over the psychological hurdle the injury poses.

In the grand scheme of things, if the Habs can hold near the .500 level until Markov comes back, they will have a decent shot at making the playoffs. It's going to be a huge test of the depth this team has on the blueline, but I think they can do it. Martin is a system guy and a good system can compensate for some lack of talent. If the Habs can learn to survive without Markov in the line-up, they just might be a force when he comes back and gets up to full speed.

How's that for cautious optimism?

I'm not nervous at all. I think this Habs team is the best suited of any Habs team in the past to replace Markov. Will it hurt? Obviously, but there are guys on this team that can step up. Teams tend to gel even more when a key player goes down with an injury, look at the Devils last year. This will be a true test of the character of the team and if they are on the borderline of the playoffs 3-4 months from now, then watch out when Markov comes back.

They just scored two goals to beat the Leafs without him and played an entire game with Hamrlik and still won. build some chemistry and get Hammer back and I think they will be in decent shape.

Wow I couldn't imagine losing Chara for 4 months right now. That's a horrible injury too, I feel for the dude. What a bad break.

As long as we are bad enough to contend for Taylor Hall and not mediocre bad like the Leafs of the past 40 years.

the team will still be good.. probably good enough to battle for 8th spot. What a beat though, really depresses me.

its a tough pill to swallow losing your best player for an extended period of time but no reason to give up after one game. realistically, now that we are playing (learning to play) a more structured, systematic game our focus is more on team play than any one player.

if it was under Carbo's time, yes I'd be much more worried. however, i feel much more optimistic this time around. so the emphasis to me is getting down our system asap and spread and distribute the responsiblity more evenly.

i think always relying on one person and resting all your hopes on them is foolish. everyone must be accountable and be responsible and fulfill their role.

others now have the opportunity to shine. i'm pleased with o'bryne's progress, hammer will be back, and someone like weber has a golden opportunity handed to him.

i would hope BG waits a bit, see how the team responds before making any trades.. even with SK, just wait and see who steps up, how we respond as a team. after all, that's what JM has been instilling and emphasizing from the get go. hang in there guys! we'll be fine.

"Game over man game over!"

Needless to say without someone stepping up majorly this season will be a total loss. Taylor Hall will be in our pocket.
