Let's remember Markov missed almost TWO seasons, and played over 70 games his first season back. Therrien also over used him and under used Subban which also tired Markov out. Markov is an elite defender in this league and makes our entire team better when he plays. Next season he will do even better, especially since other teams will target Norris winner Subban more.
So, no, we do not get rid of Markov to get Letang...especially for the cost it would require in assets. We might want to recall Letang only has one year left, as well.
But see I don't much care with what Markov has left and what he may or may not bring to this team cause I think we should continue on with Bergevin's rebuild plan. Because that's where we are right now, a rebuilding phase. If we want to become elite, an older Markov won't cut it. Nor Gorges. We have to rebuild our entire D squad for the futur.
