Markov outplaying Subban at even-strength

Early numbers for the Habs top-2 d-men


Through the first 3 games of the Montreal Canadiens 2013-14 season, Andrei Markov has been the Habs top defenseman.

Markov has the top overall risk/reward rating, as well as the best even-strength risk/reward rating among Habs d-men. Although Subban has had more offensive-touches than Markov, it's actually Markov who has the best offensive-touch success-rate (70.5%).

Where Markov has been particularly impressive is on the defensive-side of the puck. Number 79 has been more involved than Subban defensively, with 0.84 defensive-touches per-minute compared to Subban's 0.52. Markov's defensive success-rate is outstanding, as he's been successful with 75.6% of his attempts to remove puck-possession from the opposition; a full 22 percentage-points above Subban.

Markov's even-strength scoring-chance ratio last season was 0.47 scoring chances produced for every 1 scoring chance against. This season he's increased that ratio to an incredible 2.00; better than PK's ratio of 1.15 last season.

Markov also has the d-core's top takeaway to turnover ratio, as he's produced 3.19 takeaways for every 1 turnover. Last season his t-to-t ratio was 2.63. Subban's ratio of 1.94 takeaways to every 1 turnover this season is well below the 2.43 ratio he produced last year.

It's important to remember that these number are only through 3 games; it's still early.
