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?

Markov-Gorges
Spacek-Subban
Emelin-Weber
Hal Gill dressed but used just on the penalty kill
