Larry-Robinson Posted September 15, 2009 Report Share Posted September 15, 2009 I was listening to the interview today with Markov and you can just sense listening to him fight with the English language to either understand or reply to that giving him the "C" would only hurt his game in the long run and without proper understanding of the questions how can he properly give a good answer. I was listening to some comments on the TSN site, and it makes me laugh just to read the ignorance of some of the comments as to why Markov turned it down. Here are some: WOW! Who does that? That sure shows his commitment to the team.. I doubt he'll resign after his contract is up.. Say goodbye to another star Montreal in 2011... He's the only one worthy of a C.. Check that roster out I don't see a single player worthy.. Thats not a good sign Gainey Can't say I blame you Andrei. You'd only be thrown to the wolves every time the team loses - which will be often this season. report this comment Im a HABS fan and have been since CONCEPTION. With that said, Im also a REALIST. Would you accept a position to captain the TITANIC when you already know what the outcome is going to be? report this comment smart move by markov ... who'd want to be responsible for leading the habs this year?! it'll be like protecting the little kids at the playground during recess ... report this comment Habs will be captainless like the Leafs now who wants to be caption on a sinking ship. Declined??? Good team spirit to start the season. Should get rid of him too. report this comment I wouldnt want to captain a team who's fate rests on carey price's shoulders either Being Captain of the Habs is NOT what it used to be, there used to be an almost godlike manner to the position but lately it isnt there so much.Markov just wants to play and let him as it is probably his last year anyway. The Habs are just an ordinarry team with nothing much going for them eventho they are my team and have been for over 60 years but they are so watered down they are pretty much a have been franchise report this comment Martin has said that Bob Gainey and himself will pick the Captain after the exhibition. They will see who got the moxy for the Captain. I think it will be Gomez for 2 reasons; reason one, he has the experience, has a Stanley Cup to his resume and looks to be a vocal guy who doesn't mind dealing with the media. reason two, he has already begun to take french lessons and so by early in the season he should be able to answer a few questions in french.
