Diaz still is weak defensively, physically, and offensively, in the offensive zone, I have yet to see him orchestrate scoring chances all by himself by doing a clever pinch or by making a cross-ice pass to the level of Markov's.

The only thing Diaz has on Markov is pure speed. But then, so has Campoli.
Fair enough... But how many times have you seen Diaz caught fatfooted at the blue line ? I really don't think Markov is a top 4 D on a good team.
