Bouillon is grit, and although he has good puck moving skills to get out of the defensive zone, he ain't no offensive talent. Diaz is great in the offensive zone, a great passer and puck mover, although he gets overpowered often, I feel he has improved the defensive aspect of his game this year (from the little we have seen). I think a team can be successful with having Bouillon on 6th and Diaz on 4th, and I think Bergevin thinks that too. What's Diaz's contractual situation? being an older player, is he RFA or UFA? or does he still have a year to his deal?
He has a year after this one on his current contract and then is UFA. If he plays like he was pre-injury then he would get top 4 kind of money, say $4M or so on 4-5 years as a UFA. MB needs to make a call on him to either try signing him long term or else trade him because he will have value if he picks up where he left off.
