Pk's not a superstar now either but he's our best blueliner.

Markov at his best was far better than decent defensively. Not elite defensively, never a superstar, but you are making him sound like Kaberle. For a few years he was an above average two way 5 on 5 player and perhaps the best PP weapon in the league. A top 10 defender in the league yes, arguably top 5, but his only year with the Habs as a top tier team, Kovalev kind of stole the show.

I'd take Semin over Cole or Gionta without second thought, and yes I'm considering Cole last year and not just this. Whatever they'd lose in leadership they'd gain in everything else.
