If you don't think Markov is a top 60 D in the league then there is nothing that can be done for you. Whether or not he is an ideal even strength partner for Subban is another question.
I agree, people here are way too hard on Markov, though he's lost a step from his prime, he is still in the top 10-15% of NHL d-men.

Diaz can play top 4 on a lot of teams, if he is your #5 then the defense should be strong. Very good puck mover and distributor and very underrated defensively.
