Markov howling to start Coyotes career // Toronto Sun

By LANCE HORNBY -- Toronto Sun
Two displaced Maple Leafs intend to carve a niche for themselves in the NHL Western Conference. 

After initial shock, Danny Markov and Adam Mair have come to grips with the trades that sent them to the Phoenix Coyotes and Los Angeles Kings respectively. 

Markov's departure already has been lamented in several quarters of Air Canada Centre. The Leafs will miss his spunk on defence and hope to replace him short-term with Anders Eriksson and Karel Pilar, but more than likely they'll be making a move for additional blue--line help at some point this season. The trade also broke up a successful partnership with fellow Russian Dmitry Yushkevich. 

"Life is life and business is business," Markov, 25, said after a workout in Brampton with Mair and other National Hockey Leaguers. "I tried to play the best I could in Toronto and I'll do the same (with the Coyotes). 

"They're a younger team there and I think I'll have to play more physical." 

Markov's reckless approach to hitting -- he once toppled a rival team's mascot who was taunting him from the top of the glass in an AHL game -- is what first endeared him to the Leafs. But the high-risk style led to a spate of injuries and only late last season did Markov regain his earlier form. He fetched Robert Reichel, Travis Green and minor-leaguer Craig Mills in a June trade with Phoenix. 

Markov will be reunited with Cliff Fletcher, the general manager who took him 223rd overall in 1995, as well as ex-teammates Sergei Berezin and Mike Johnson. Markov already can envision himself in the colourful Coyotes sweater. 

"It's like a cool wolf," he said of the logo. 

Markov's year already got off to a great start when he scored a goal for the Pavel Bure-led Russian squad in an all-star game win over Jaromir Jagr's Czechs during the Spartak Cup in Moscow. 

"My wife, my parents, about 30 friends and (Russian president) Vladimir Putin were there," Markov said proudly.
