It would be nuts to move Diaz or Weber now unless the return is too good to refuse, both are awsome #6-7 d-men when you consider they can play up to 20 minutes and make less than 1 mil. Gill is getting long in the tooth, might be his last year. Campoli as a full UFA(July 1st) probably gets 2-2.75 mil/year on a 3 year deal(7-8 mil total). Spacek is also getting up there in age.
I would keep Gorges(3-6 year deal around 3.25-3.75) and Subban(2 years at 7-8 mil or long term at 5 mil/year) plus Markov with Emelin(will need to pay him around 2-2.5 to keep him from KHL), Weber and Diaz...then sign a big stay at home guy that is younger than Gill(Allen Boychuk or Mitchell type...maybe Suter if he is available).
Diaz and Weber can play up to 20min, but shouldn't on a contender, IMO, especially both at the same time, and especially when there's yet another rookie on the blue line.
I don't think Campoli gets that much, unless does something special in the playoffs this season. He was UFA last offseason, and didn't get much. IMO he's a player type that is underrated in the league. I can see him filling the Spacek role going forward.
I agree with you about signing "a big stay at home guy that is younger than Gill." I actually think two of them would be ideal. Something like:
For this season, as much flack as they get from fans, I'd trust Spacek and Gill over the rookies, down the stretch and (hopefully) in the playoffs.
