Safe to say since he is back he's the best dman on the team.

The PP struggled because we had no point shot. I don't know how anyone can argue against the fact that Markov made all those players play above their heads. Komisarek went to the All-Star game hahaha. He's far and away better than any player we have except Price. He makes everyone around him better.

It really trips me out how people see Subban as a player. I love the guy and want him on my team but my god he gets so overrated here. I can't stand the guys turnovers and stupid penalties. What you guys see as an excellent zone clear, I see as a wasted opportunity to get the puck up to the forwards. If he could just calm down and get his head up when he has the puck, he'd be sooo much better. When he makes his crazy pivots and dipsy doodles to beat a forechecker, I want to see him make a great, quick pass after, not a 50 foot high clear on his backhand, or skating himself into a corner in the Ozone when there are options everywhere.

I'm banking on Markov being healthy and PK getting to learn from him all year on the little plays and having poise with the puck, because if PK had that then we can start talking about team Canada and him being a dominant defender! For now though, everyone slow down and please stop comparing him to Chris Chelios... What a joke!
