Can't help but laugh at the people complaining. Not exactly sure what people expected the return to be on a 28 year old healthy scratch who is going to be a UFA in July
If anything, this should mean Beaulieu is staying which is the best news out of this trade
Obviously top 6 scoring is our biggest problem right now, but Diaz wasn't bringing that back no matter how he was packaged
Complaint is that not that long ago, that Diaz guy who is suddenly no good, was pretty good. And he was NOT a healthy scratch. It's the other idiot coaching who made him that. And sorry but Therrien is not the guy I will base my evaluation on players on. A Weise acquisition is just like a cup contending team in needs of some small tweaking....we are so not there yet. Though, will some in here do believe it, I don't. And frankly, with Bergevin in charge and Therrien coaching, the idea is to try to not destroy this team.....I will be satisfy now if we can limit the disasters with those 2 in charge....and the great Rick Dudley assisting....
I suggest we trade Lars Eller for Matt Hendricks...is it the next step?
Can't believe a guy that has shown he's capable of top-4 duties is worth a 4th line plug...
Top 4 duties with who?? He wouldn't crack the lineup of any contending team. This is the problem with hab fans in general. In that case Desharnais has shown he can be a 1st line center so he should fetch us something pretty decent right? People are clueless
What do you mean by "shine"? Do you really think there's more to Diaz's game than what he's shown with us?
He was really good in 2011-12 and last season before his concussion. The Canucks will put him beside a competent defenseman who can compliment his game and do the dirty stuff for him. He was paired with #7s this season. We never got to see what he could have done with Emelin or Beaulieu.

Good one, Weise is in no way shape or form better than Moen and he won't intimidate anyone.
You've convinced me... Dale Weise will save our season!
Where in the world, did i say dale weise would save our season. You think Diaz would. He hasn't played in over a month, he is a ufa at the end of the season and he wasn't going to resign. So bergevin got what he could out of him and that was dale weise.
Id rather have dale weise playing over parros any day of the week, and the same for beaulieu over diaz.
