Markov will start as our #5 defenceman, so pairing him with Emelin is ideal.

We'll have to give the kid another look at some point, but that will likely be determined on how he works in practice. I know a lot of people like Diaz, but he's also a rookie and should be the one to sit at some point to give Emelin another look, which I expect will happen.
I thought his attitude sounded promising as well. Having Markov around (who thought enough of Montreal to become a Canadian citizen) should help.

It's a bit too early to be jumping to conclusions, one way or the other.
