I think we might be pleasantly surprised of Markov next year. Last season was long for him, he played in Russia before the NHL restarted and clearly lost a step during the season due to fatigue. While this might happen again we can hope he'll be better prepared next year due to actually having played last year. Its also expected that Subban gets much more ice time from the get go next season, hopefully Markov plays 20-22mins instead 25+ like he regularly did last season.
