He has hockey sense, and accuracy. Once other teams adjusted, Markov did not have the same room to shoot and the PP struggled.

#3- Diaz can't shoot

#4- Subban can shoot

#5- The Subban-Markov PP pairing did not work because Markov has been sucking ass lately. They recently put Diaz back on the PP and Markov seemed to want to play again.... maybe something about PK's game was bothering him... but they still aren't scoring on the PP... so no matter how much you wish it were so, the PP wasn't struggling because of Subban.
1 - Ya someone who could shoot and didn't have to be the total focus of the PP.
2 - It didn't struggle until PK was shoehorned in.
3 - He isn't supposed to shoot.
4 - Ya he can shoot, hitting the net is a different story.
5 - It didn't work because the entire focus was Subbans overhyped shot and he would constantly carry the puck and take a weak chance that would get turned over. It has been obvious these last couple games that the PP is much more dangerous and creates more chances when the only option isn't PK no matter how much you wish it wasn't so.

Cue the tears.
