Now don't get me wrong, I'm a huge Emelin fan and he's a very good defenseman, however, Diaz brings a lot more to the table and does it at a higher level.
Have to disagree. Diaz' positioning is mediocre. He does good against the boards (usually first to the puck), but gets beat often in front of the net, moreso than Emelin.
