pk will never reach the next level if he cannot stay out of the box but could learn a thing or two from markov about being a professional on the ice. markov reminded me tonight the difference in mentality, which you cannot teach, but it resonates through-out the team.

markov just makes me feel comfortable, subban never brought anything but pure excitement. he has a LONG way to go.
He's got talent that Markov never had though. His skating is sick. He hits, isn't afraid to get dirty and he's just really, really good.

I was skeptical of him but he's really proven to be a gem. I'm excited at watching him develop. He's not as good as Markov was in his prime but he will be very soon.




If he ever signs a contract.
