In more offensive/fast paced games, rest Tinordi or Bouillon and put Diaz in.
How is Bieksa a "great #2-3 d-man who is big"?
He is listed smaller than Gorges, a bit more physical but not as good on PK and his offensive numbers are not much better(9pts vs 12 points) but he has a bigger cap hit.
A perfect example of "the grass is always greener on the other side".
