Montreal Canadiens coach Jacques Martin detailed that defenseman Andrei Markov will not play in October. When asked about the 32-year-old Russian's availability as he continues to rehab from knee surgery, Martin reiterated that it was "out of the question" that Markov would return this month. Martin noted that Markov is "on schedule" and will be under the watch of Dr. James Andrews, who is expected to see the blue-liner again this week. Markov has been sidelined for a nearly a calendar year since suffering a right knee injury against the Carolina Hurricanes on Nov. 13.

  • Markov is another statistic to the long list of similar injuries to former NHL players. The question is why would Gauthier sign a fragile player to such a lucrative long term contract knowing very well that a second injury to the same knee is never a good omen.
    They say a new broom sweeps the floor!!!!! In my humble opinion I beleive Geoff Molson is actively looking around for fresh replacements.It's obvious that Gauthier,Martin and Trevor Timmins have failed to deliver consequently they have to go.
