Hjalmarsson is a nice piece, sure, but if Markov can actually be healthy for once in his life, Emelin can continue his development and Subban's on the books they have a pretty serviceable defense.
We still have Gomez, if he's on a line with Bourque and Gionta there's no reason he can't get 40 - 50 points next season.
Management hasn't given any indication that he won't be given a chance to make the team or that he'll be playing elsewhere. Posters here can pencil in and out whoever they want on their roster cards.
