I'm guessing that the consensus #1 d-man on HF is Subban.

However, for those that argue for Markov (which includes me), they can point towards one aspect where Markov is clearly better (at this stage of their respective careers anyways), which is anticipation. Markov's instincts allow the puck to seemingly follow him. On the PP, he always seems one move ahead, and instead of worrying so much about where the puck is, he is already heading towards where the puck is going next. I think subban will get better at this with experience, but Markov has mastered it.

I don't know if that explanation makes any sense but I tried, lol
