I don't get why we don't have Subban and Gorges playing 25+ minutes a game yet together, that's still our best even strength pairing. Gorges is not untouchable as far as I'm concerned but we already know he compliments Subban perfectly, plus they will relieve some burden off of Markov and Emelin who have been making some mistakes lately. Diaz hasn't been great lately, I still think he has a bit more upside but I'd rather just play it safe for now.

I guess the only concern is a Diaz-Boullion pairing would be completely incapable of clearing the crease.
