Diaz, much like all the manlets in our team, is victim of our lack of diversity in the lineup.
Except that Diaz is not exactly the person to get rid of if you really want to increase our lineup's defensive effectiveness. Like you said, he's effective defensively, has high IQ there and get the puck out rather quickly.

Do you want to see if Bergevin has balls? I'll tell you straight up:

Trading away Markov and signing Diaz is the ballsy move. That's the gamble.

Otherwise you just keep a (still effective, but) declining defenseman for.. how long? How long do you think Markov can still be part of our top 4?

He'll always be effective on the power play, obviously.
