Why it has to be one or the other?

Markov is a no brainer. Finished top 5 in the league among dmen for scoring. Reduce his icetime gradually and he's good for another 2-3 years at least.

If Diaz shows some improvement in his overall game, keep him as well and round out the d-squad with some thoughness (Tinordi, UFA or trade).

A D-squad with Subban, Markov, Gorges, Emelin, Diaz and Tinordi is OK. Not great, but still very fine for the next 2-3 years.

You can look for improvements/depth via trades or from within (Beaulieu, if he gets there).
