yes d don't grow on trees but he is not a core player that is a must to keep

look around the league and see how many 3-4+ mil type d are killing teams caps
Liles, Mezeros , etc...
All compelling points.

Plus, when did Diaz become a 2nd pairing D? How many of us are overvaluing him just cause his coach has been showering him with 20 mins of TOI, same coach who until recently had been capping the playing time of one of the league's best defensemen.

Diaz is Streit lite. Nygren is a more complete player who needs more games on our smaller ice surface but when he'll be ready, he'll be more suited to our needs than Diaz will never be.

And ... just because some of us are suggesting that Diaz should be shopped, doesn't at all mean that he should be liquidated.
