Retain or Release: Raphael Diaz

Raphael Diaz, in a lot of ways, seems inconsequential. After all the noise surrounding the Callahan/St.Louis swap, he was quietly shipped to New York as depth for a fifth-round pick. He played a handful of games in the regular season and then a few more in the playoffs. All without much fanfare.

Diaz’s days with Canadiens are numbered

The Canadiens like Raphael Diaz. Diaz likes the Canadiens. But Diaz’s days with the Canadiens are numbered. If the Swiss defenceman isn’t traded before July 1, the Canadiens will allow him to test the free-agent market. This is one of those decisions that will be governed primarily by the business of hockey, but there is also an on-ice element. Diaz, who turned 28 this month...

Habs sign Diaz

The signings continue in Montreal, as the Canadiens announced the signing of defenceman Raphael Diaz this afternoon to a two year deal, avoiding potential arbitration. Diaz had 3 goals and 16 points in 59 games for the Habs last season, and slots in as the likely #5 or #6 defenceman in Montreal come October…or November, or whenever we have a CBA.
