RDS also report the same thing.

Atleast now we can forget about his return . I'm sure if he could play through the pain he would have played through the pain.

Confirmed on RDS as well. We can't say that he didn't try to comeback.

Olala. Insane injury. Hopefully he can come back 100%. We really need to stop being Markov-dependant.

Gutsy by him to try to play through it.

Get well soon General!

Ewww. Ew, ew, ew.

Just what the Habs need, they're already going to be life-and-death to make the playoffs next year. Great.

Clearly the guy will make a return by October + November. The season wont start till atleast the 2nd week of October..

Let's stop being over-dramatic about all this assuming that next year is over.

No off-season training for Markov, no training camp

He better be wearing those friggin kevlar socks, he's gotta be the unluckiest guy

Since it was announced he had a torn ACL, you knew it would be 6 months.

Him skating was false hope to almost all habs fans.

Comming from someone who has had experience of the injury, there was no way he was playing!

So we're in ECF and people are already saying we're roasted for next year?

Markov should go back in Russia as soon as the Habs win the cup, and take all the time / personnal needed to get better. Get well Markov. I love you.

It certainly won't help, what with -- as was pointed out -- no training camp and minimal off-season training. He's likely going to be off his game for most of the year.

Hopefully when he comes back he's not too far behind in terms of conditioning and game shape. It's one thing to lose him for the start of next year, it's quite another if he can't come back to his full potential for an extended period of time after that.

Confirmed by the Habs

Habs press release

Meaning a mid-November return. Hopefully he has a speedy recovery and can be back sooner. He was able to do that earlier this season, so let's cross our fingers.

This has been a reoccurring theme for the past 3 years, not too sure about this one anymore.

This guy can't catch a break.

At least this forces the team to learn how to play without him. I just hope he comes back next season at the top of his game without any long term consequences.

Montreal needs to sign dfds with a great first pass, and some decent speed. Thats how we can stop becoming Markov dependent.

Subban will be ready for a full time gig next year, but we need another dman who can move the puck. We arent leaving it all with PK.

31 years old, 2 ACL injuries + 1 other major injury, all in 1 year...

I think that he's now an injury prone player...

Though there's nothing really positive about this news and its actually very horrible but there is one small spark of light. Markov won't be able to negociate a huge salary after two seasons of injuries. Hopefully we'll be able to resign him later for a little less. Mind you, I would trade any sort of discount in for 2 healthy seasons of Markov.

Oh man. Our cap situation is really bad. It would be great to get a decent offensive defenseman as a UFA as an insurance policy, someone like a Joe Corvo or Dennis Seidenberg but theyll both command around 3 million. Keeping in mind the players we have to re-sign, do we really have the space for another 3 million plus player? Paul Martin is a UFA as well and that would be a pipe dream, but there's no way NJD lets him go.

That means a November return. This guy can't catch a break lately. Hopefully the recovery process goes well for him and he returns at 100% when he does return.

Are his best days over?

Only 2 things I care about
