Except one or two weeks earlier, Diaz wasn't hurt. They had a full allotment of d-men with Weber & Kaberle waiting in the wings. After Diaz went down, they played Kaberle one game and Weber the next. That's when Weber got hurt and then they started with the AHL auditions. If Diaz hadn't gone sown or they knew for sure he would be back by the playoffs then yeah I agree with you, they're not going after a d-man. But with the uncertainty of Diaz's return, they really have only 5 d-men on the blueline. Circumstances dictate they go get a veteran d-man despite what MB said at the beginning of the year.
