From as objective an opinion as I can form, being a Flyers fan, I would say that the best comparator to Diaz on the Flyer line-up is Read. Both players are undrafted late bloomers, a bit on the small side, but who are (or were, before Read's injury) playing strong supporting roles under each team's higher-profile talent at their positions.
Read was building on his very good first season before going on IR. Diaz's season last year was more modest, so I would say he is the higher risk of this season being an aberration.
As much as I and most Flyers fans are enamoured with Read as a potent scoring forward who is defensively responsible and on a great contract, for the sake of this exercise, a 1-for-1 swap of these two would be fair. It would also satisfy a position of need for Philadelphia but not for Montreal.
