Purely for fantasy hockey this year, who would you choose between them
Depends on the scoring settings. If PIM is one of your stats than u have to consider that PK is going to get WAAAAYY more PIM than markov in fact he's probabley one of the most penalized players in the nhl.
points wise i'd give markov the edge. plus/minus will probabley be pretty even
If healthy, Markov will get you more points. He has a knack of being at the right place at the right time, and he's more efficient. You might notice Subban more, but Markov will get you the greater production.
If we're including GWG then Markov has a huge lead already.
If you're talking about going forward... my money would be on PK because of the PMs. He racked up 100 last year and those aren't as easy to get as they used to be. Markov will be the primary guy on the PP though so it depends on your needs.
The other wildcard is Markov's knee...
If I had to pick I'd go with Subban going forward. He might not get as many points as Markov but he'll still get his fair share and he doesn't have the same injurty risk. And those PMs are hard to pass up.
