Is it possible that the extraordinary performance of PK in PP this season is caused by Markov?

Streit (34 PPP) had his best season with Markov.
So did Souray (48 PPP) and Komisarek.
Interesting approach but Subban is really good 5 on 5 and can hold his own defensively paired with anyone. His skating is beyond anything I've seen on the Habs since maybe, pre-injury Markov and his physical agility and strength is superior to anyone else on the team.

He's a two-way d-man, he's not a Green/Karlsson type. He won't create EV offense because we don't play that way, he gets the puck, gives a great pass and lets the forward create the play before he jumps in or pinches. If his offense is getting overrated, I'm not worried because his defensive play is as real as it gets.

The only worry would be if, god forbid, he gets injured and isn't the same after the injury because at the moment he beats his opponents with only his physicality and speed and agility, not even his hockey sense.
