Markov The Agitator

from the Traverse City Record-Eagle,
...And that skill is what reminds many Red Wing players of Konstantinov. "He's a gritty player, an in-your-face type of player," Detroit defenseman Chris Chelios said of Markov. "He'll probably play against the other team's top line. It's not so much the big hits, but he's always agitating players. He basically compares to a Konstantinov, that kind of player." "He's an agitator. That's what he does. He upsets guys and ribs guys and throws them off his game. You know he's out there, and if he gets a chance to hit you, he will." Essentially, he's the kind of guy you're glad is on your team and not playing against you. "I don't like to talk about myself," Markov said.
