We'll see but my money is on PK.

He's a legit first line pairing defenseman now. Elite? Maybe not yet but he will be and it wouldn't surprise me if he arrives this season.
Agreed. Also, and E=CH has already brought up, we know PK can perform in the POs.
Not to mention, he seems to truly enjoy the big, intense, rivalry type of games. He even admitted during post game interviews versus the Bruins. He loves those games. Kid lives for intensity.

I would bet on PK as well, and that's not a knock on Markov. He was my favorite Dman during his prime.
