Diaz

What could the Habs get for Diaz?

He's having a decent season, Habs have 8 d-men with Beaulieu and Tinordi expected to arrived as soon as next year. Now maybe the time to trade Diaz to get maximum value. Like to get a good look at Weber in his role and possibly Swedish Nygren next year. Diaz is a good passer, good on the powerplay, 26 years old, signed for another year at low caphit. He should have good value.

So why would the Habs trade him?

Seriously, you're better off fielding offers for Kaberle and/or Weber instead. You'll never get full value for any of the 3 anyway and Diaz brings something, as you've described.

Diaz is establishing himself as a top 4 defenseman and a PP specialist while neither Tinordi or Beaulieu has proved anything. It's still too early to think about trading him and make the Streit mistake.

Tinordi and Beaulieu can take Bouillon and Kaberle's spots when they leave. Also Weber will be redundant and can be traded before Diaz.

Wouldn't get nothing for Kaberle...if could get overpayment on Diaz maybe time to move. I don't think he is long term part of the team.

There is no chance the Habs move Diaz IMHO. Not just that he's been even better than expected. But he's also part of the roster and salary structure nicely for next season. Better to get nothing for Kaberle than to get whatever it is that any team would offer for Diaz (which wouldn't be enough).

Habs will keep using Kaberle a bit more than we want to help "showcase" him for trade value. In the meantime, that shouldn't be mistaken as an indication that anybody else is a trade candidate.

My point exactly. No reasons what so ever to trade him.

Well, Tinordi is developping into a defensive and powerful defenseman. It would be too early to compare, but I think he could become a guy like Hal Gil or even a Chara if he goes full potential.

As for Beaulieu, he appeared to be a Subban type of player, but less flashy. Somehow I also feel he won't be as good as Subban, but that may change with time.

As for the OP, I'll stand by everyone here and say that there's no point in even trading him. He had a slow first season last year, but right now, he's dominating especially on the powerplay. For the moment, we need him.
