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.
Incredibly short-sighted. Markov is beyond "peak" effectiveness, and soon to be begging for a smaller role among the blueliners. Beaulieu is also at LEAST a year from being able to contribute nearly as efficiently offensively at the top level. So there's Subban moving the puck, and then there's... ?

I find he gets heavily underrated here because he's 5'11" and smart and not a 6'4" grunt who hacks in front of the net.

I see him having a very solid NHL career playing about 20 minutes a night, helping on both PP and PK, plus being a well above average puck mover. A poor man's Keith.
We are easily in better agreement here than the other thread.
