Thats way to much for Scuderi.

I would call up Weber for now and if that isn't enough make a trade.I don't know who for yet but obviously a defenseman.

No one will replace Markov but a guy like Weber might be a pleasant surprise for us all or for that matter even Subban.My main issue with those 2 is because of their lack of Nhl experience they won't be anywhere near as good defensively as Markov.

The other option if possible is to make a trade for another top 6 forward to boost our offense even more and just keep going with the weber and Subban until Markov returns.

An example would be the Kostitsyn bros and something for a legit 1st line forward??

i think they can`t replace Markov but they should give the rookies (Weber & Subban)

a chance to play and get experience in the NHL.

The season just started so let them show us what they can do for the team.

I agree, also, it's more Bob's style to go that route 1st.

If Weber or Carle can't cover the mins or handle the PP that's when Subban will get a chance.

If this experiment (that will likely last until end Oct) is unsuccessful BG would likely try to make a deal.

IF there is a deal (and I don't think there will be as I feel Weber is capable as a PP specialist right now) but if there is I feel Edmonton is ready for a deal

I can think of seven people to replace Markov:

Roman Hamrlik

Jaroslav Spacek

Paul Mara

Josh Gorges

Hall Gill

Ryan O'Byrne

Yannick Webber

There's no point at all in trading... even if by some miracle someone was willing to send us a top pairing defenseman there's no way we could fit them under the cap. Anybody else would be just taking up a spot and not really doing any better than the guys we currently have. If we're going to make it through this season, Markov's got to be replaced by committee.

What Markov brings to the table is something that can't be replaced by commitee, if he were more of a defensive defenceman we might be able to get by with everyone stepping up but out of the rest of the current defencemen no one can make that first pass like he does or can run the powerplay that he can. At this point I think the best course of action is to try out Weber or Subban(probably Weber first) in that role over the few games and if that fails make a move.

Agreed 100%!

My point wasn't so much that if these guys try hard they'll be able to make up Markov's production, it was moreso that all this talk of trading for a replacement is kind of silly. We are going to be a much worse team without Markov, no question about it, but if we're going to win we'll need everyone to play very well.

As far as Weber and Subban go, I'm sure Weber will be called up. I don't understand, though, how we can expect that either of these guys can just show up in the NHL and run the power play. They can shoot, yeah, but I think we saw how that experiment worked out in the playoffs last year. I mean no disrespect to Weber either, since he played very well given his age and situation, but he's not ready to QB the first wave of an NHL power play. Subban's even farther away (or are we forgetting how he looked in the pre-season?). He's still junior age for crying out loud... he'll be great I'm sure, but not this year. Weber will get a shot to play with the big club now, but he won't be on the first pairing.

Either way, we've got Spacek. He worked Buffalo's PP, he can do the same here. Not as well as Markov, no, but with the help of the rest of our D he's going to be counted on as our best shot at winning.

I think i would be comfortable with giving Weber a shot alongside Spacek. Its worth the experiment this early in the season IMO. I mentioned in another thread about the possibility of JM dressing 7D for awhile to see how the kid works out.Worse case scenerio is if it doesnt fly,, the kid gains some valuable experience.

I totally agree with this line of thinking, well said

According to Bob McKenzie on his Twitter (twitter.com/TSNBobMcKenzie), Patrice F. Brisebois is being considered as a replacement. I kid you not! BRISEBOIS! God help us all if he does return...

I'm not sure if Breezer would even be in shape at this point... I would understand Dandenault perhaps (at least he had a try out this pre-season), but even that would be a bit of a stretch.

More likely a call-up or different free-agent signing.

Watch, We will end up with one of the following D,

1) Breezer

2) Dandy

3) Bouillion

I wonder if anyone of them would accept a 2 way contract? If not then what just the league minimum and place him on waivers when markov comes back

Makes sense to me. As i beleive all 3 are jobless and we need someone who knows the team/system/Town.

I agree with this. I believe there's no way we can replace markov. The best we can hope for is an all-round better defensive corps to hold the fort & thus not have to rely on markov all the time. If necessary, I would sign another 3-4 dman (similar to a Mara) to give us some added depth, but I would not be trying to "replace" markov because its, frankly, impossible.

Well there is one good slim possibility out of this.We play well without Markov and are over the top when he returns,thats a best case scenario.I just hope we don't wait to long to se if we can do well without him.It's always to close of a race for those last playoff spots.
