Last year was a rarity, in that Markov may not have been our best player (though he was close, and it took an exceptional year from Kovalev to make it a question). Really, he's been our best player of the whole decade.
Price is the one guy that could unseat him currently on the team, but he's not there yet.
You are right. Markov this year (Komisarek isn't even close IMHO. he's having a pretty bad year). Last year it was Kovalev.
I still think it's Markov...in fact, i'd venture to say he's been the Habs most valuable player bar none the last 3 years
Kovalev was a beast offensively last year...but Markov was a beast at both ends of the rink. Again, I don't think people appreciate everything he does for the Habs...(wasn't referring to you specifically)
