Markov should be kept, even an ageing Markov will help this team. Markov is not a greedy guy, and he is loyal, I think that we can resign him to a reasonable contract when the time comes. But believe it or not, Markov helps out Subban a lot more than people think. Before many of you start fuming, I am not one of those who underestimates Subban's phenomenal play and talent. Nevertheless, Markov is taking load off of Subban shoulders. Subban's job is definitely less stressful with markov there to help him.
Markov's value to the current and future success of this team shouldn't devalued. Markov's presence on the team would help out offensive defence-men like Beaulieu, Diaz, Thrower, etc. Tinordi keeps talking about how Gorges and Boullion have helped him out a lot, as good as Subban is defensively, he just cannot help Tinordi out as much as the older (defensive) defence-men.
So let's keep Markov, this team is and will be better with him on it.
