472 pts in 391 games... I'll take him on my team even though he doesn't care.
Same with Ovechkin and his 650 pts in 520 games.
Datsyuk is amazing and Kovalchuk is on pace for 80 pts this year.
After the lockout, Markov was the second most consistent
D-men (after Lidstrom obviously) right after signing his previous contract. Second best D-men from 2005-2009 (until the injuries started
). I just want to see him play a little next season.
Was such a treat to watch.
His pts/per game post lockout hasn't been matched by anyone not named Lidstrom and Gonchar (who BTW is Russian)... and he actually didn't get the chance to play with superstars (closest one was Kovalev).
All those guys are Russian! Some of them are really paid well but look at their numbers, they are actually producing... the same cannot be said for a certain guy named Scott Gomez.
