PK hasn't been able to quarterback the powerplay like Markov, he doesn't see the ice like Markov (think about all those cross ice passes for one timers, the two zone breakout passes etc). Markov is a game-controlling defenseman and in my opinion is superior defensively and offensively. PK has trouble getting shots through, still needs to get that big slap shot, finds himself out of position sometimes etc...You're talking about one of the best in the league here. I love PK, but in my opinion it's not even close. Markov is extremely underrated. The only area where I can think of right now where PK probably has the edge is physicality.
I think you're thinking of Markov from 5 years ago.
