In fact, I'm pretty sure that if you proclaimed Markov would become a top-10 D in this league, you would be told that you wear rose-colored glasses and that Markov would probably become no better than Patrice Brisebois.


Can't wait to see one or several of Subban, McD, Fischer, Weber and others try to reach for that, and I have a pretty good feeling that at least one of them may become an underated superstar like Markov.
A lot of people did try to hype him up and he was compared to Brisebois quite often. Of course back then being compared to Brisebois wasn't really a bad thing but it did mean he would be nothing more than a 2nd pairing pp dman, not the all around puck mover he has become.
