As for markov being a PP specialist, guy is playing the most in entire team(more than subban too obviously) and we're saying he's a PP specialist? Subban plays 1:05 min PK per game, Markov plays 2:34. Markov also plays more ES time than Subban, even more PP time. He beats him in every category.
Markov plays more in pk and pp because of our lack of depth on defense. Who would you rather have out there? Markov or Yannick the panic Weber, Tomas Kaberle, Francis Boullion, Josh Gorges on the powerplay? I say PK has neck to neck vision/hockey IQ as Markov.
