You are making my point. There are teams that have the big DMen and would love to have a finesse DMan like Diaz. Montreal isnt one of those teams.

Nothing personal against Diaz. As of right now, he is not a good fit here because we have just resigned St-Denis and then there is Weber and Kaberle. Of that group, I think that we 'probably' could get the best return from Diaz in a trade.
