Raphael Diaz

Most underrated player of this team.

Solid defensively, a force offensively. Sign him long term before it's too late.

But seriously, if he is not injured, Diaz could easily get 40-45 points this season (last year 0,6 point/game). What type of contract does this type of 27-28 old defenseman get as a free agent? I think people don't realize how valuable this defenseman is.

That was some sick composure on the Eller goal.

Seriously? Because of one period?

He had a good first period of the first game of the season but there's still a lot more hockey to play.

Easily outmuscled a few times in that period.

Not every player is perfect.

He won't win all the physical battles but he'll make some great plays.

Someone feed this kid and put him on a strength program. Good offensively but too small and weak to be efficient defensively.

He's a smart player. Yeah he's not the strongest blablah but that never been his forte anyways. He's very quick to make a pass or a decision. I don't have a problem with him at all.

1 good game = sign him long term
1 bad game = trade him

People forget how great he was before his concussion last season. Couldn't quite find his game after returning but I've always liked Diaz. He was good his first year here as well.

He's Markov's replacement in my opinion. But I don't particularly like seeing he and Markov together. Too physically weak a pair.

Personally I would rather get assets from him (sell high), groom Beaulieu to take over from Markov when he retires.

He's generally dependable, but he's not being at his best so far tonight. Hopefully once the rust shakes up he can take it up a notch.

We need a "Where's Waldo?" type game for Diaz for every time he moves to support the offense. Capable of the best but also the worse.

Diaz rarely makes the "big mistake" but people will jump all over the 4th goal and try and use it as the norm. Diaz makes the right decision 95+ percent of the time. He gets a shot blocked and they score...off a lucky bounce off Bouillon blocking a pass...and suddenly everybody on here starts with the see! see! see!

People will try and blame the defense, but the forwards sleepwalked through most of the 3rd.

I'm not saying he did anything wrong really, but looking at a lot of replays he ends up in really strange places. That fourth goal was bad luck for almost everyone (especially Bouillon). My only gripe with him is his "Subbanesque from early last year" fire wildly at the net and miss almost every time giving quick transitions to the opponent.
