I largely agree. I think Markov might still be more of a "No. 1 D" than Subban, but it's close. And Markov is getting up there in years, while Subban is young, so I think it's better for both men for Subban to log the most minutes and Markov to be 2nd for ATOI for the D.

Perhaps Subban isn't getting many minutes yet because they're waiting for him to get more into game-shape (since he did miss a few games at the start of the season). That's what I'm hoping anyway.

Subban definitely should be logging 24 or more minutes per game if/when he's at 100%.

And I agree with you that Subban/Gorges and Emelin/Markov should be our top two pairings, in that order.
