I can understand were these RDS talkbackers are coming from. After all they were probably pre-pubes when Markov last played, so they can't quite remember how good he was and how he's been giving it all for our team faithfully for the last decade.

Well it remains to be seen. Subban definitely has the edge physically now and will have much better stamina but I believe Markov will still be our PP general. He's definitely going to be a good top2 or top4 with us and we really need that kind of quality on defense atm. With Markov we have a solid top3 and some depth, without him we have one of the worst defense in the league.
