After that?

Gorges, Markov, Bouillon, Emelin, Diaz

Who do you replace? Where do you improve the D? Let's remove Markov from this list since you already said it's possible to improve our D by keeping him...
Gorges, Boullion, or Diaz; or any combination thereof. These are largely run-of-the-mill uni-dimensional defesenmen who are not capable of logging big minutes.

Markov and Subban are the only defensemen capable of logging 24+ minutes. Why would you take out one of those in an attempt to improve your defensive core? Gorges is a bit of an exception because he is capable of logging large EV TOI (even if this capablility is diminishing), but he can still be upgraded for a strong two-way defensemen who can do the same thing, but bring more dimensions to your d-corps.
