Extrapolating on a PP guy in a 23 game season is dangerous, Diaz shouldn't be in the long term plan here.
So what? Pittsburgh got "destroyed" 10x worse by Boston, does that mean they have to upgrade on Crosby and malkin as top 2 centers?

Basing an evaluation of a player based on 5 game period in inherently flawed, especially after you tell me that prorating his stats based on 23 games is "dangerous" then you go and pull something 5x worse...even worse when you consider the huge imbalance in goaltending. Diaz was average in that series, definitely not the reason we lost.

I guess we have to use the Ottawa series as the "truth" so we should be drafting 3-4 goalies among our early picks since goaltending was a huge issue in that series.
