What everyone should know is that Markov was down for the Habs and that they used an untested Subban on PP in the playoffs rather than passing on the spot to Bergeron. That is a huge statement in their choice. They were using others (eg Spacek, Hamrlik) as well as Subban ahead of Bergeron in the playoffs.
Bergeron lead all Habs dmen in PP icetime in the PO's so I'm not sure how you are coming to that conclusion in your last paragraph.
You and count me in the "do not want" crowd though. What he brings offensively doesn't come close to making up for how bad he is in his own zone. Not even if he's playing a forward spot at even strength IMO.
