At this point in time, I suspect that Diaz is a better NHL D-Man than either
Emelin or Boullion. I'm with the majority of posters here, that I'm cheering for
Emelin to develop into a good, and hard hitting NHL D. I think he might be close.
Especially if used on the left side. But Diaz was better last year, and he is also
allowed to improve. Also, some posters may have forgotten that Diaz was shut
down after trying to play through a injury for a long time. People sometimes
forget that he played well, even surprisingly well, before being injured. (Groin?)
I think a lot of posters remember only an injured rookie on a train-wreck of a
team.
In short. We need both Emelin and Diaz to improve, and play well. But last
year Diaz was closer to a good NHL D-Man than Emelin. And there is no reason
that Bullion should play ahead of either.
