So just when we were hoping things were turning around on the injury front, we get the news. Pierre Gauthier woke up from his nap on the beach to inform us that Mr. Markov was, get ready for it, going in for knee surgery. Are you fucking serious?? For the love of god. To be honest, I sort of blacked out after that so I missed the rest of his press conference. When I woke up, I was naked and spooning a replica Stanley Cup. That's the 3rd time this week! After listening to it again, I realized why I hate this GM so much. When he finally crawls out of his hole to give us an update, this is what we get. He said Mr. Markov 12 times in 3 minutes, that this is somehow good news because the reconstructed knee is strong, and that Mr. Markov is working really hard to get back. What a douche.
So there you have it. Another month without Mr. Markov. Remember back in the day when you were in school and there was always this one kid who was never there because he was sick? One day it's the chicken pox, next week it's a broken arm, then the measles. At the end of the year, this kid showed up 9 times and somehow got better grades than you. That's what Markov and his $5.75M salary is starting to feel like.
You better be well rested and ready to play when you get back Mr. Markov.
