As for Markov, you need veteran presence on D. We don't have that many veterans left on D. You always need a mix of young and older guys to have a winning team. Keeping skilled veterans is always good to share knowledge, experience and usually gives a calming presence for the kids.
We really don't need him. I'm sorry but we don't. Subban developed fine without him. As for Markov being a leader... I've seen no evidence of this. He's surly to the cameras and seems downright rude sometimes. People assume he's a leader in the dressing room but who really knows? Besides we've got Subban who's great and Gorges can assume the role of elder statesman now.

I suspect we're going to waste him the way we wasted Koivu. Makes a lot of sense to deal him. We won't though.
