The only one out of that group that has the potential to be what Markov has been is Oliver Ekman-Larsson. McDonagh is a stud but he'll never run the PP and be the puck mover that Markov has been. Carlson is solid all around but doesn't excel in the offensive side of the puck and would argue he is no where near as smart positionally or with his stick as Markov.

Alzner is strictly shut down, one dimensional. Hedman's offensive upside is a question mark to me. Shattenkirk's had a nice debut to his career, we will see if he can round out his game.
