Well, hard to play that game. If we have Markov and Gorges, we don't acquire Wisniewski and Sopel, most likely. Still, certainly having Markov would be a huge difference maker, wouldn't be playing Subban + Gill 25 minutes a night. Having Pacioretty would be great, too. But it doesn't mean Spacek stops playing poorly or Gomez/Gionta/Plekanec score more, necessarily.

All in all, don't know, and honestly injuries are a huge determinant of playoff success. Gotta stick to the cards you're dealt, so Gauthier's avoidance of any *large* deadline deals was for the best.
