Markov is still a top 10 defenseman in the league

The fact he played 3 games in a row is more impressive than 4 points in 2.5 games. If he get's 15 or 20 more games in without any injury... I will play the lottery!!

Markov is on a 37 game ironman streak, I believe. You better go buy those tickets NOW!

I totally understand those of you who are saying to wait more than three games, but the amount of skill and intelligence he has displayed in three games alone is really quite astonishing. The Habs look like a completely different team. If you have any doubts, you should tune into the games against the Cats and Caps.

But, now we need to see what he can do against even stronger competition.

Anyway, playing like he does, and if he doesn't get injured this season, we can already mention his name for the Masterton.

Markov had already played 21 games in the KHL during the lockout.

You gotta remember that a lot of posters on this website are rather young. While others just have short-term memory when it comes to the NHL.

The way he massacred your team last night you should think otherwise.

He was always just behind Mike Green.

Only Lidstrom had more points than him between the lockout and his injury. He was definitely top-10 in the league before he was injured.

Love his vintage Markov backdoor goals like he just made
This exactly, I wonder how many people praising him were calling for his head a few months ago.

Great to see him getting back into shape, was such a great defenseman back when he was healthy, top 10 worthy. As of now, it's a little early to be making such statements.

Markov may have been drafted as a forward, but he's never played that position in the NHL.

Markov can still makes the breakout pass like no one in this league. That's what i like the most, obviously he can still run a PP also.

Dunno why there was any doubt. He's pretty much the best in those 2 specifics categories in the entire league and it's 2 categories for which his physical condition (soft knee? slower? not as strong? etc.) doesnt come into play.

He still have his elite vision. That's a positive for the habs for sure.

He's always been brilliant offensively. Defensively? Not bad but not great. Where he ranks depends on how much you value offense vs defense. Because offensively he was probably a top 5 blueliner in his prime. Overall though, I always had a tough time seeing him as being any higher than maybe 10th. The man can run a powerplay but I wouldn't consider him elite defensively the way I would with some other blueliners out there.

He was always a tier 2 in terms of the best defensmen. Reminded me of Gary Suter. Really, really good but never quite up there with the truly elite blueliners.

I don't see a lot of people hating, I see a lot of people saying it's been three games. Your screenshot seems to agree with that.

I feel that you have left a bit inside.

"Criminally" is such a weak word to describe the depth of your feelings.

One last push and it will get out...
