PK Subban looks like he'll have a truly special career. It's obviously way too early to be talking about his jersey getting retired but he's an exceptional talent and he's been improving season by season. The 2011-12 season was really fun to watch him evolve. As I said before, he's proven to have HOF talent. I don't think Markov had this. Markov falls into the category of the very good. But he's not superstar material the way Subban is.
