Defence is a team concept. If the forwards don't do their job, no d-corp will succeed anyway. A couple of bigger forwards would also help a lot.
I'd consider keeping them around if they were to be the 5th and 6th d-men on the depth chart but I don't see them being used like this under this coaching staff. They aren't that good defensively as to be a mainstay on a first or second pairing, and Markov can't carry his partner like he used to. As for Markov, we can either trade him for value now or have him mentor one of Beaulieu or Tinordi on the second D pairing, I wouldn't be opposed to that either, he can recycle himself into a PP specialist like Gonchar did.
As for Tinordi, I agree with you, it is definitely him, and add Beaulieu to that equation as well. I can't wait for those two to ''arrive'' and become permanent fixtures.
