Markov will be 35 by next summer, and if he remains relatively healthy, he is a much bigger piece to the team than Briere. So I can see him being re-signed unless he asks for the moon.
Sorry but playing defence in the NHL at 35, 36 is alot different then playing forward...which is why you see alot more forwards playing into their late 30s early 40s....dont get me wrong there are some defence that play to that age but far less... I think they are going to need Markovs money to pay for Subban because he is going to get and rightly deserve big money..... and the last time I checked the salary cap isnt going up next season and beyond.....
