Earlier this month, Raphael Diaz was waived by the Rangers, as he was lost his 7D spot to Dylan McIlrath out of camp. Diaz, naturally, is not all that pleased with being in the AHL. His agent has requested (per Larry Brooks) that if he is not back with the club in a month, that […]
1. As you may already know by now, Raphael Diaz and Jayson Megna both cleared waivers Saturday afternoon paving the way for the 23 player lineup the Rangers are expected to begin the season with on Wednesday. There had been some internet reports about Diaz threatening to bolt back to Europe in case he didn’t make the team. It appears for now that he will report to Hartford, but...
Both Raphael Diaz and Jayson Megna cleared waivers this afternoon, and will report to the Hartford Wolf Pack. Megna clearing was no surprise, but it is relatively surprising that Diaz cleared. There are a few teams that could use a cheap, capable defenseman –specifically Boston, who is without Zdeno Chara and Dennis Seidenberg– but I […]

What a strange and wonderful league we all enjoy. Dead weight defensemen such as Deryk Engelland get multiple year contracts and Raphael Diaz, who can actually be useful, squeaks by with a training camp invite. According to Yahoo Sports, Diaz has multiple training camp invites and will take the weekend to decide on his future. Two continue reading...
When the Rangers acquired Raphael Diaz for a 5th round pick, it was pegged as a depth move made by a team that needed a #7 defenseman pretty badly. We made the same assessment, but said not to sleep on that deal. Diaz was a solid contributor for Montreal and Vancouver, perhaps more-so than his […]
A Coup for Gillis and Co. A slew of injuries to the Vancouver Canucks blueline and a less than desirable start to an all-important five game road trip later, and management has already seen enough.
