Markov is still a top 10 defenseman in the league
 
We just forgot how good he is. Completely re-transformed Montreal's PP and transition game. Very solid defensively as well.

4 pts in 2.5 games so far and is making Diaz look like a Norris candidate :)

The guy is just on fire. I wonder what kind of a season he'll have if his knee stays in tact. I forgot how good he was (or IS).

nitz 01-24-2013 07:18 PM

How about you give it more than 3 games? Jeez.

RonFournier 01-24-2013 07:18 PM

Hell yeah, he found his defensive game back too, and I can't wait to see our PP with him healthy and Subban's shot.

Sky04 01-24-2013 07:19 PM

He was definitely one before injuries creeped in, hope he can keep this up.

He's in God mode right now, making it look so easy.


P.K. who ? :sarcasm:

I loved all the Habs fans that wanted to get rid of him and buy him out... I guess most people forgot the amazing hockey IQ he has. Even if he seems a little slower, he's still an extremely good D.

He makes our PP change drastically, basically night and day when he's on the ice...

Love his vintage Markov backdoor goals like he just made :handclap:

That's 131.2 points extrapolated to an 82 game season.
Forget top 10. The thread should be: Who is Better Orr vs. Markov. :)

Fraser Read 01-24-2013 07:21 PM

And i picked him up waaaaaaay too late in our pool. Loving it.

What shouldI relax about? The guy is just really great. Just watch the plays he's been making, even if he was playing on a wheelchair, he wouldnt be doing them without his amazing vision.

BigZKingK 01-24-2013 07:22 PM

There is at least 10 D i would take over Markov personally love the guy but come on it's been 2.5 games

Calm down...breathe...

Cory Trevor 01-24-2013 07:24 PM

yah i was thinking about this before. no one forgets him, it's just the injuries are just so difficult to deal with. i think anyone would agree when he's healthy, if he isn't top ten, he is pushing it. He and Gionta are probably the only Habs I like.

If he stays healthy, its decent leverage against Subban. How long can Subban hold out for? Not a bias question, an honest one, I just dont know what the limits are.

Montreal fans........... :rolleyes:

Dasachtach 01-24-2013 07:26 PM

Homer.

Bleeker 01-24-2013 07:26 PM

He definitely look like the Markov from 4 years ago. He's a beast

MrFunnyWobbl 01-24-2013 07:28 PM

Erik who?

Dylbot 01-24-2013 07:28 PM

This is ridiculous.

Over the medium/long term, there are definitely more than ten defencemen I'd take over him.

In the short term, if Markov is healthy (which he is at the moment), there aren't that many.

Krishna 01-24-2013 07:30 PM

Really?

68 games since the 2009-10 season.

Chill out. He's had a few good games.

This makes me really laugh.

Before his injuries Markov was considered an undisputed top 10 defenseman in the league on these boards. Now I'm being called a homer if I'm reminding everyone that he's still a top 10.

He's been our best player in all of the 3 games. Name me 10 defenseman that can transform one of the worse PP to one of the best in the league.

sharks9 01-24-2013 07:31 PM

This is definitely premature.

That being said, he has been a BEAST so far. I could easily see us returning to having a top-10 PP unit as well as usual amazing PK unit.
