I'd imagine - barring other injuries - when Markov comes back it'll be Diaz into the AHL. No fault of his, but Diaz playing 22 minutes a night in all situations wouldn't be a bad thing. He brings a lot, but Weber, Markov and Subban all have similar skillsets. Emelin, I imagine they'll keep because if Markov gets hurt again they can just recall Diaz, they cannot bring Emelin back from Russia.

My hope is this:

Markov - Subban
Gill - Weber
Spacek - Gorges
X: Emelin
Inj: Campoli
Markov-Subban could be good but what happens when they both want to carry the puck and make stretch passes and jump into the rush at the same time?

Hal Gill dressed but used just on the penalty kill
