From reports I heard, seems like Markov shouldn't miss more than a month at the most. My budget looked like this:

Michael Cammalleri - Tomas Plekanec - Alexander Frolov
6000000 - 5000000 - 4500000

Benoit Pouliot - Scott Gomez - Brian Gionta
1500000 - 7357143 - 5000000

Maxim Lapierre - Lars Eller - Andrei Kostitsyn
1000000 - 1270833 - 3250000

Travis Moen - Ryan White - Tom Pyatt
1500000 - 850000 - 800000

Andrei Markov - PK Subban
5750000 - 850000

Jaroslav Spacek - Ryan O'Byrne
3833333 - 941667

Hal Gill - Josh Gorges
2250000 - 1100000

Carey Price
2750000

Martin Biron
1500000

Spares:

Mathieu Darche 550000
Defenseman* 1500000

Total: $59,052,976

The Defenseman would be a UFA signing who can fill in for Markov while he's out, and then battle with likely O'B for who is in and who is out of the lineup. At $1.5M (or less), looking at the UFA list, it might be someone like:
Christoph Schubert
Garnet Exelby
Carlo Colaiacovo (ideal, but probably a little more expensive)
Brett Lebda
Milan Jurcina
Nick Boynton

(till Markov is back, we would play Spacek - Subban, Gill - Gorges, New D-Man - O'B)
