1. Markov is out again.
2. He'll have the young Subban to watch over.
3. He's in the last year of his contract.

It would have to be something really beneficial coming in to move him at this point. Hamrlik will know exactly what is expected of him at the start. A newer guy maybe not so much.
I like the way you think
there's other ways to make cap room
