Only people who are happy with mediocrity would say that!!!

JK.

We need to see how Markov can play. It will influence whether or not the habs go out and spend cap and roster space on an insurance policy for him. If he's ready to go and shows he's as good as ever, no need to look for an attempted replacement, or a defense that could help shoulder the burden.

If he's not as good as he once was, then the habs know that he needs to be replaced and to what extent he needs to be replaced(whether internally or externally:via trade or UFA signing).
