I have seen him play 20-30 times over his career. Markov has better vision, passing and puck moviling ablity. He is one of the best in the NHL in this aspect. JB is bigger and stronger than Markov but he doesn't have that level of ability with the puck. Markov is a top 10 NHL d-man...JB is a notch below that. He is not dominant offensively, defensively or physically but he is pretty good at all 3 aspects.

Florida has not been a powerhouse, but JB has had some pretty good players to play with and averages 40 points a year. He'll take the man, but is no more physical than Markov.
