When I was first introduced to Markus, it was towards the end of the 1997-1998 season. He wasn’t playing a lot, he was struggling to establish his career. And when I spoke to him on the phone, he said to me that I shouldn’t waste my time. In all likelihood, I am going return to Sweden, at the end of the season and not come back. It was kind of an odd thing to hear from a young player, but I thought, well I’ll give him some time. He’ll change his mind. Second time I spoke to him he said, “You know you shouldn’t waste your time. In all likelihood, I am going to Sweden at the end of the season and I’m not coming back.” Again, strange. The third time we spoke, he told me, “You know, I really hope you won’t waste your time. In all likelihood, I’m going to Sweden at the end of the season and I’m not coming back. It was like dealing with a Swedish groundhog. Everyday was different but it somehow remained the same. The fourth time we spoke I had a plan. I suggested that I would watch his remaining games and decide for myself whether I was wasting my time or not. Markus thought about that for a minute and he said, “You know what, I really don’t want you to waste your time. In all likelihood, I’m going to Sweden at the end of the season and I’m not returning.” He’s quiet but stubborn.
