If Markov retired tomorrow, would you want the Habs to retire his number?

But he's not superstar material the way Subban is.
Now Subban is a potential HOFer while Markov accomplished nothing? Potential to take the top 3 in points for a defense-men while playing much less games IS impressive and a feat on its own.
Our record with and without Markov in the lineup (especially prior to Subban's appearance on the scene) speaks volumes of what he brings to the club, the emergence of Subban as a potential future star does not mitigate Markov's accomplishments this far.
The difference between Markov and Subban is one loves the limelight, and in today's uber social media world, that's a huge plus, while the other shies away from it. Had Markov had Subban's personality he would have had a few "individual honors" to his name.
You can't make a case based on future accomplishments while disregarding and downplaying current mile stones to bolster your argument.
