Markov and PK were the best PP duo in the NHL, by far. Unless Beaulieu and Diaz can also provide that while performing as a top 4 D, then we can talk about it.

Moving Markov now just because it might be the best time to do so while killing our PP pair would be dumb.
If PK doesn't rack up the points on the PP as he did, he doesn't get nominated for the Norris.

Diaz has been injured every year here, and he's struggled for half his games over that tenure. If he goes through yet another similar year, I don't think he'll get another contract.

Ideally, we have three PMDs matched up with bigger and more physical Dmen. So PK, Markov and Beaulieu matched up with Emelin, Tinordi, Gorges (hopefully we could move Gorges for a bigger and more physical version).

If Markov also adapts to being a little slower, then he could serve a huge purpose for us.
