Markov was in his prime above average defensively. If Habs fans overrate him it's because his defense was somewhat underrated league-wide as he was perceived as a power play specialist.

But Subban last year was probably on the same level defensively...if anything you are starting to underrate prime Markov by claiming Subban was "miles ahead"...Prime Markov was still a better decision maker, but Subban already is better at a lot of things on that end.

On the other hand Subban isn't in the same league as Markov offensively, but of course Subban is far ahead of Markov overall if you compare them at the same age. I agree about the best defenseman since Chelios thing, Subban is already projecting ahead of every Habs defenseman since Desjardins, arguably Chelios.
