The same cannot be said about Spacek and Subban.

And about their respective potential, Weber and Diaz have more potential for improvement than Spacek or Subban.

I am not saying that Weber and Diaz are better than Subban or Spaceck, nor am I saying that both (Diaz & Weber) have more absolute upside potential yet both have more relative upside than Subban or Spaceck.

In other words, the stock of Diaz and Weber is more interesting to hold than the stock of Spaceck or Subban.

I see it like this:

Subban A
Diaz/Weber B+
Emelin B
Spacek F

In terms of potential. Subban isn't showing us what we all know he's capable of, and he's equally young as Diaz/Weber and will also become a better player imo. Remember he too is young he just broke into the NHL after 1 AHL season.

I do agree though that Diaz AND Weber can both be quality assets for the habs. I think Emelin can be that D who fits with Markov too, given his style and that he's Russian it makes sense.

Spacek (dealt for future considerations at deadline)
