They have Markov, Gorges, Emelin, Diaz, up front; and last summer there were those reports saying they wanted to find out how good Beaulieu and Tinordi could become before deciding how to incorporate Subban into their plans.

It may be that they're hedging their bets, that they're hoping both Beaulieu and Tinordi succeed so that they no longer need Subban, because they don't want Subban.

I think Morgan Ellis is also making a case for himself as a solid prospect, though the media never talks about him.

Tinordi and Beaulieu are above average prospects, Ellis is solid and Thrower/Dietz are decent, but any of them will be lucky to be 75% the player Subban is. Subban was a winning lotto ticket, you don't throw that out unless you know you can make a great trade, are a control freak beyond reason or a racist.
