You want some logic? Here it is:

Murray can't skate.
Murray can't win puck battles he can't get to.
Murray can't get to the puck so he can't get it out of his zone.
Habs get outshot/outplayed dramatically while Murray's on the ice.
Habs lose with Murray.
Murray won't be on the ice when the other team has speedy guys on. He probably won't be used on the PP also. But if the other team sends out grinders, Murray could be used. Let's face it, all the faults Murray has, Diaz is lacking as well in many areas.

Can Diaz clear the crease? No
Can Diaz move guys along the boards and get the puck out?? Not really so well
Can Diaz check? Not well
Can Diaz stop a guy driving to the net? No
