Exactly. I'm afraid guys like Subban and Gorges could get worn out way before mid-season. We also gotta keep Big Hal in shape for the last straight AND the POs (yeah, I'm that optimistic). But the young ones (Diaz, Webber and Emelin) will benefit from our present situation as it forces them to give a little bit more then they normally would've to IMO. With Markov in the lineup, these guys wouldn't see as much icetime as some of them have right now.
