Please, while it is true that Diaz is not better than Subban or Markov, it is equally true that he has the POTENTIAL to be as good a PMD as Rafalski was. There is nothing you can point to that suggests otherwise.
That's such a cop out though.

You can pretty much say any player, who realistically still has room to grow, has the potential to become any player of a similar play style.
