He's going to be a very good dman IMO, but he's still very raw in terms of positioning right now. There's nothing wrong with him being the #7 dman right now.
Just because the guy's made a few highlight reel hits, doesn't mean he's played well...his style of play is pleasing to the eye of the casual fan, but he's got a lot to work on IMO.
It'll come...but he's not there yet
I agree with this. I also hate that people need to belittle Diaz in order to feel better about Emelin. Diaz has been a much better defensemen overall. People should look towards Gill if they are angry.
