Nobody knows when/if he'll get injured again but I've got no shame in calling him a top defenseman when he's healty.

I've been a member of this board for over 10 years, even though I don't post often, so I perfectly know that each year a lot of people go crazy over some dude who start the season on fire, but Markov ? Crosby is having a quiet season so far, but I have no trouble calling him a top player. Joe Thornton is on fire lately, should I wait more games to call him a top center in the league ? He's Joe Thornton, I don't need to see more games of Joe Thornton. Same with Markov.
Good point. And well-said.
