Although I agree when it comes to Weber, I really like what Diaz brings and think he can be a perfectly reliable bottom-pairing guy. He's got loads of experience and improved markedly as he adjusted to the NHL game over the course of last season. He should be more prepared for the long season this time around, and if he's paired with someone with more size (like Emelin), I think he's ideal in that bottom slot. Being stuck with Kaberle makes for a more complicated situation, but either way, I want to give Diaz the opportunity to succeed.
In the end, given our depth in defensive prospects and the fact that we're not in a position to compete for the Cup this season, I don't feel the need to panic at this point. I would love a big, shutdown, top-4 guy, but I'm also willing to wait on it to find the best fit.
