Why people are so quick to replace him among the 6/7 full-timers is beyond me.
If he is a valuable commodity, he will be valued by other teams looking for a player like him. Thats excellent because we need something different on our D core, we already have Markov, PK Subban as puck movers but what we need is a throwback to Lyle Odelin to help these guys out when the going gets rough. If that guy exsists, then lets send Diaz and someone else to get him. We have too much of one thing right now and that will get us nowhere. I love Emelin and like the future of Tinordi but we need a guy of that nature with NHL experience to balance out our D core. Diaz is the odd man out, so why not move him to greener pastures and get the guy we need.
