No way. Markov has never played to the level Subban is right now. You are dead wrong here.

We haven't had a defenseman this good since Chris Chelios. He's better than Schneider, Desjardins or Markov... and it won't surprise me at all if he wins the Norris and I never saw Markov as a Norris calibre guy.

I don't think this is true either.

Thing is with that team is that a bunch of guys had career years. This year's crop is young and will get better. This isn't a career year for Pacioretty for example and he can play better than he has. Price has played really well but he can be better. We've got Eller who has flashes of brilliance and can be better. The only guy who might be having a career year is Subban and I actually think this is just indicative of the kind of player he's going to be.
