I love the hate for Diaz.

He was our best Dman with Subban out.
The only productive thing Diaz did for us last season was to give Markov the puck. I swear all of his points before his injury were on Markov's hotstreak and fancy plays.

He's ridiculously soft too, often falling by himself without any reason, losing the puck for no particular reason, and VERY often losing his man in front of the net.

I WOULD hope Diaz will be paired with Murray though, as they look like they're very complementary. But I want no part of him with another small d-man. He must play with Emelin or Murray. I'd still rather Murray, who's even more of a stay-at-home than Emelin, who occasionally goes for the big hit or for the risky pinch*.
