Problem with those guys (except maybe Kaberle, if you look solely at points), is that they're pegged as more offensive D, who don't really drive any offense. Weber who is supposed to be a PP specialist hasn't wowed anybody this year. If they were making cases for themselves in the offense department, I could understand wanting to keep them. At this point. I'd be ready to trade Diaz and Weber for equivalent value in shut down D.

And I know that this is a topic about size, I think Gorges and Subban are roughly the same size (not very big), but are still VERY effective defensively. We need some tougher customers on D to get guys out of Carey's way and to clear the crease. Would be nice to have some guys to control the post-whistle shenanigans too. Not necessarily fighters, but I think people underestimate the effect of a face wash when you get one 15 times a game .
