Diaz (I know some are gonna twist this to show what's wrong with our team but whatever...) was Montreal's best defenseman after Subban and Markov. In february he was averaging almost 22 minutes (21:58) of ice time a game, and do you want to know what our record was during that month. 9 wins, 2 losses and 3 OT/SO losses. NOt bad a for a mediocre team... So instead of trading Diaz for marginal players who won't help the team long term or will barely fill any organizational needs other than toughness. How about we keep him and mentor him so he becomes our next Markov?

Agree wholeheartedly. He was coming off a concussion and onto a team laden with injuries. He wasn't fabulous in the playoffs but he was unbelievable throughout the regular season. Little bit worried we rushed him to be honest.
