Streit barely played D when the team was rolling in the 2nd half of 2007-08, so I am not sure who to compare him to on this team.

I think Markov's current impact is pretty comparable to Hamrlik's that year, but obviously different players.

The 2007-08 team also could never find a true partner for Hamrlik. We rotated an old Brisebois, an inconsistent and shaky O'Byrne, etc. This year we know who our top 4 is.

But the main thing you left out is 5 on 5 play. This year's team kicks the 2007-08 team's butt 5 on 5.
