I'm worried about Markov because it seems to me that his points in the first games of the season had more to do with the other teams being bad at penalty killing, giving him way too much space, and he was crazy opportunistic (the goals vs capitals and devils in OT).

It became obvious that outspeeding him is the key to create chances against the habs. I'm scared when he is on the ice at 5 on 5, and even in power play because if he overcommits offensively he cannot back check well.

I don't know many players who can afford to be as slow as him (and lack so much acceleration) and still be good...and he is having trouble right now.

Pk has much more tools right now to be dominant.
