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.
Marov is a UFA after next year and you need more than 2 PMD's so trading Diaz for a stay at home guy fills one hole creating another. Plus with Gorges, Tinordi, Emelin plus Pateryn/Ellis the "stay at home" mix will be fine going forward. If they want to sign a uFa to help with Emelin out, that's fine but makes no sense to trade assets for one. Fistric or Murray would be fine.
