The Habs were a last place team last season. Weber and Diaz (and Kaberle but cannot see Kaberle being cast aside) were a part of the problem.........a defense that was too soft.

Commodore needs to be on the Habs roster. He can be the 7th DMan and does not have to play every game. His size and grit and ability to clear out the crease far and away is much more needed on this team than what Diaz or Weber brings to the team.

Time to let the old ways of soft Canadiens hockey go.
The habs defense last year flopped because of the 2nd pair...Markov had complications and Spacek just plain sucked...so that forced Diaz Weber and Emelin into bigger roles than they should have and they struggled at times.

LA won the cup with 4 PMD's and 2 stay at home types, none of which are bone jarring players except maybe Greene. I'd rather too much skill on defense than a bunch of lead footed pylons. Maybe Diaz amkes Weber expendable but only if we can get a good return, tired of giving away young players.
