Agreed 100% and I've been saying the same thing for years.. He's is our best defensive defenseman. The only area where he isn't the best amongst our defenseman is hitting.

Who do you put in your first PK line-up as a D-Men?
Personally I make sure my most mobile, defensively sound d-man is on my first PK unit because there has more ice to cover, plus a guy who is capable of clearing the crease. But that's just me.

From what I know about playing defense, Hamrlik is better at restraining forwards from going to the net and at retrieving pucks than Markov. Just by a air though.

Actually they are pretty much as good as each other in their own zone, it's just that Hamrlik is a very patient player that plays with a ******** of poise and rarely makes mistakes. When you talk about Markov in the defensive zone, you enter the "unorthodox" territory. He has a very peculiar style when following forwards into the zone. His whole defensive play is more based on speed and stickwork than most "classic" defensman like Roman.

Georges well, he would kill his new born son to make a play along the wall... need I say more?

Yeah I agree Markov has a fun unorthodox D style, you actually notice his speed a lot more in his own end then when attacking. It's fun to watch.

Bar none, Hamerlik. The only x-factor here that hurts his individual defensive stats ie. plus/minus is the fact he plays with Breezer a lot, So really in the defensive zone hes playing both positions.
