Besides I'd rather overpay a little to get a top end D-core then skimp on the D to overpay on forwards.
this. Diaz is looking for a raise, and the way he played this season so far it's well deserved, but we already have Markov/Subban capable of bringing offense from the back end and when everyone's healthy Diaz will play the 3rd pair... as good as he can be, there's no point in paying 3Mil or more to play on the last pair, might as well give the spot to a cheaper D or a youngster.

Markov, Subban, Gorges and Emelin are a lock for the top 4, and Markov/Subban are a lock for the 1st PP unit...
