If people didn't forget and still think he's not elite, then they simply don't know hockey.
Don't agree with this at all.

Subban is far more physical and a better skater than Markov ever was. Markov is incredible on the PP and has great offensive instincts.

Personally, I think Subban will be far better than Markov ever was in the long run but that remains to be seen. I don't think he'll ever be as good as Markov was/is on the PP. Markov is the king there.

Every time he's touched the puck on the PP we've scored. He had something like a .500 shooting percentage or something crazy like that coming into tonight.
