Subban has played like a #1 (at worst #2) for the past two seasons. Markov has a total of 20 games played, 6 pts and a -2 rating in that time span. It's not about stats, clearly.. But Markov has been recovering from injury for the past two seasons, whether it's rust or regression in his game has yet to be proven.

What is proven is that Subban has played better than Markov in that time span, regardless of circumstances. Markov in his prime is > Subban (of today) AINEC, but we don't know exactly what Markov's situation is until he gets back in game shape. If Markov returns close to peak game, then and only then will I agree with that kind of statement.
