First off he played around 25min a night so he hardly is only contributing on the PP only. Second it's been covered in the Markov threads already but there's a decent chance that next season he'll be faster than this year since he'll have gotten his conditioning back and won't have as condensed a schedule. Even if he doesn't since his play has always been based on positioning/intelligence instead of physical skill he'll be able to adjust.
And second the expectation is for Markov to anchor the 2nd pair with Subban on the 1st pair so whether Tinordi becomes a defensive stud or not has no relevance to Markov place.
