Kaberle was good on the power play because of McKabe's shot however, once most teams knew he would not shoot himself they would key on the shooting defenceman and that is the reason he and PK never worked well, every defence was key on PK as the shooter. If you look at how PK and Markov work they switch up and both shoot the puck, so that makes the PP more effective. If Kaberle would shoot more he could still be effective on the PP. It was not that the Habs did not give him a change, they just had too many defencemen. The got Boullion because he was more consistent and played a tougher game than Kaberle. Really there is not much difference between him and Markov skill wise, except Markov shoots the puck and tends to get more involved down low which is what makes him that much more effective.
