Like it or not, Andrei Markov is still there for 2 more years, minimum. Obviously, it's a risk, and we'd be way better off WITH Subban in the lineup, but he's not there for now.

It's not a "bad" idea by any lenght. He's certainly proven to be damn good.

Bouillon on PP and PK is unoptimal, for sure. But having him in the lineup is certainly a good thing; he brings quite a physical side that was only there with Emelin and, up to a point, with Subban.

Or, more to the point, Prust is more important to this team than Subban?
On the short term? Actually yes. We had NO player like Prust, our 4th line was composed of frikkin' spare parts. For now, our Defense seems to hold without Subban.

Mid-Long term? Nah.
