Seems that Diaz was underrated by a lot of people, myself included.

Might be but not a gimme. And if he does in Montréal like he did in Vancouver, not wanting to grind....he's not going to re-sign him. And not going to change this year's dynamics either. While a 4th round by Timmins....might change something.

Timmins hit one home run. Subban. The rest are singles. He's the Tony Gwynn of scouts.

From today's standpoint it's pretty clear that player 61 was responsible of Eller's injury during the series against the powerful Sens.

I think Diaz might be slightly better (mostly because Gorges cratered more without Diaz than Diaz without Gorges) but it's hard to say( because I'm not sure who is worse to have as a Partner between Emelin when he came back from injury and everyday Murray).

Diaz getting similar results but with a playing style that means he takes less abuse than Gorges might very well mean he'll be effective longer.
Yeah, I read those numbers about him having a stellar goals against vs icetime. Still think he was a soft blueliner and best suited to the 3rd line but those numbers are impressive.

We'll see how he does in Vancouver but I think we'd have just been better off playing him in our lineup. We'll see I guess.

Eller or Leblanc, assuming they can even get anything for the latter.

I agree, Diaz is probably worse than his numbers suggest because he can be pressured - Diaz was probably smart not being physical, because he likely would be terrible at it (see Yannick Weber), but it also caused him to have limitations. I hate the term "soft", especially for someone who blocks as many shots as Diaz did, but he definitely was the closest player to some of the stereotypes around here about the smaller players on this team.

But the thing is, his numbers were very good, and his flaws sink him down to being an average player. And average is still better than some of what we have right now.
