Replacing Diaz with Grossman is a downgrade overall. If you can get Grossman, or Volchenkov...or a UFA, then leave Tinordi in Hamilton to start. That way he is still developing and you increase depth.
I don't see moving Diaz as a way to improve the defense, you fill one hole by creating another. If you move Diaz and Markov goes down do you play Subban all game? Part of having depth is having more than one guy who can play a certain role. If you move Weber, buyout Kaberle and trade Diaz too you thin things out in the PMD department.
