Markov definitely loses the physical aspect, sure. But it's not like he was a pushover. Markov was better at every other aspect of the game in his prime than PK is now besides maybe showboating.
I tend to agree but...

Markov faded in the post season and never found a way to stand out and make a big impact. It's unclear to me whether it's because he was worn out, injured, playing on bad teams or if he just isn't a playoffs performer.

Subban, on the other hand, showed more in the few playoffs games he played than Markov in all his playoffs career IMO.
