Diaz lacks physical strength but he is acting smart about it: he reads the play well, he actively covers a lot of space, his positioning is sound... I like him.

However, Markov + Gorges + Diaz, all receiving top4 minutes, is not a viable solution imo. It is not a good mix of toughness and sheer physical strength. Short terms, a solution would be to reduce Diaz’s TOI by 2-4 minutes while increasing Subban’s ice time by the same amount.
