I agree with you on most points of your post but BUT like you always said you rate players based on their ability. Considering Markov has the ability to be a dominating and defensive solid defenseman I do not understand how you figure Markov deserved a passing grade. I mean hands down he was the worst player on the ice when it comes to playing up to your ability.
He was sooo slow last night that I was shocked that every1 on the Oilers team beat him in a foot race (I had to double check each time that it was 79 as I couldnt believe my eyes). He was also very ineffective on the PP. By far his worst game in the past 2 seasons and does not deserve a B- (no matter what scale you use).
My rating for Markov: D-
