Subban is the only one who could get it done. What would that leave the Habs with?

Pacioretty-Plekanec-Gallagher
Galchenyuk-Eller-Drouin
Bourque-Desharnais-Gionta
Prust-White-Moen

Markov-Emelin
Tinordi-Gorges
Beaulieu-Dias

Pretty big hole there but you get that dynamic presence up front and if Tinordi and Beaulieu keep on the path it's possible you're ok. But that's putting a lot on young guys. Probably delays the team's progress by a few years in what you give up in Subban. Not to mention by the time Tinordi and Beaulieu are hitting their stride you'll need a new Markov, maybe Gorges as well. Maybe that's some combination of Ellis, Pateryn, Thrower, Dietz, or maybe all of those guys don't develop into capable NHL d men.

Anyway, I don't think I'd do it but he's the kind of guy you'd want to get if you did.
