Both are similar age, come from Europe and had no problems adjusting to the game, so I don't get why one is god and the other is just okay.
By the way, Diaz leads the NHL in Rookie points for Dmen.
If Diaz had been scratched in favour of garbage he'd have his own thread too. If you go through the thread, most of it is cursing about how our ******** coaches kept scratching Emelin for Campoli and Gill and Kaberle.
