Listen, the track record for RDS on injury reporting has been a little spotty of late, but when they report that Andrei Markov will miss three to four months after undergoing surgery to repair tendon damage you have to take notice.
If Markov is out four months, that will mean he might be able to return after the Olympic break. While this is actually very good news for Yannick Weber, who should be on the bus to Buffalo as we speak, losing Markov for that amount of time effectively ends the Habs season before it even started.
It was fun while it lasted.
I'm pretty swamped with other (paid) work right now and will have to leave it at that. I'll take more of an in depth look at things after we hear from the Canadiens today and after I get my head around what, if anything, Bob Gainey can do with the Long Term Injury Relief he'll receive on Markov's $5.75 million salary.
