And to try and PK Subban to some of the greats in Habs history is just a joke. Any future this team has in the short term has to involve a healthy Markov leading the blueline with PK. As much as I like Gorges, he is not a number 2 dman.
I was going to mention Malakhov as well. Malakhov was a better skater than Subban and could absolutely dominate when his mind wasn't in the clouds. As far as the Markov comparison goes, Subban is definitely more physically gifted but Markov's real gift is his hockey sense and vision, which Subban still has a long ways to go to be in the same league as Markov was in his prime.
