He'd steal pucks along the boards a la Datsyuk and break up 2 on 1s like it was a 1 on 1 then send us back on the offensive with his amazing vision. Markov was truly incredible in his prime. Better than what Subban has done so far. At one point, Markov was truly Lidstrom-lite.
Markov has always been overrated by Montreal fans. I'm just going to leave it at that and let others continue the debate.
