Yeah, without Markov it looks like this for me

Gorges-Subban
Kaberle-Bouillon
Emelin-Diaz

You go from 2 pairs that you can play anytime against anyone to just 1. Markov being healthy is IMMENSE. Granted he is healthy and didn't lose the proverbial step.

And even then, Kaberle-Bouillon is a lot better than Kaberle-Weber (or, god help us, Campoli). Bergevin is right in saying you never have enough NHL caliber Ds, because when you lose one... owch.
