I agree that the end of the season and the playoffs demonstrated that Diaz is, to, the least, not part of the solution. His blind-sided pass to Eller is the best example of what some players do when they are pressured throughout a game by the opposing team. Diaz is not NHL playoff material. Point.
So let's dismiss Diaz's first 20 games, but let's judge him on five playoff games and one pass. Sorry, this makes no sense.
