#1 reason the Habs are in 2nd place in the conference rather than 15th like last year... Andrei Markov.

One of the best PP quarterbacks in the game. Subban is shifty as hell and has a wicked shot but doesn't see the ice like Markov. I'd even say Markov has a lot to do with Subban's success this year (like Souray and Streit before him). Can anyone tell me how many of Subban's PP goals this year are assisted by Markov?

Since holding Joe Thornton to 0 points in the playoffs many years ago, and even after his injury problems, he's still relied upon to handle other teams top lines whenever possible and with good reason.

Markov and Gorges were the PK pairing against Carolina's top players and were also on the ice 6-on-5 for a faceoff in their own end with 1:33 left... with good reason.

Markov is one of the most underrated players in the league, even by Canadiens fans apparently.
