VANCOUVER -- The Montreal Canadiens traded defenceman Raphael Diaz to the Vancouver Canucks on Monday in exchange for forward Dale Weise. The 28-year-old Diaz had 11 assists and 12 penalty minutes in 46 games for the Canadiens this season. The native of Baar, Switzerland, has 41 points (four goals, 37 assists) and 48 penalty minutes in 128 NHL career games but was a healthy scratch of late with Montreal. "This is the business. This is the way it is," Diaz said Monday on a conference call. "As a player you want to play as much as you can and you want to help you team." Diaz joins a Canucks blue-line that has suffered a number of injuries in recent weeks, with both Christopher Tanev and Kevin Bieksa currently out of the lineup. "As a sportsman, as a hockey player, you respect everything (teams) do," he said. "(The Canadiens) always treated me good. They helped me learn a lot things to play in the NHL. "Im really excited for the new opportunity." Meanwhile, Weise never seemed to fit into the plans of Canucks head coach John Tortorella. The Winnipeg native had three goals, nine assists and 42 penalty minutes in 44 games this season, mostly while playing on the fourth line. "I think I can bring a physical presence to the (Canadiens)," said Weise. "Im a good skater and I work hard and my success is down low and hanging onto pucks and being physical and trying to get to the hard areas to score goals. "Im not sure where Im going to fit in just yet. Im just looking forward to coming in and trying to play hard and trying to find a spot." In 162 career NHL games, the 25-year-old has 10 goals, 16 assists and 185 penalty minutes. Weises name had been mentioned in trade speculation in recent weeks, but Mondays deal still caught him off guard. "(The trade) comes as a little bit of a shock to me," said Weise. "I think any time you hear rumours around you think about it but theres so many (rumours) that go around and you just never know. "I didnt put too much thought into it ... I was shocked when I heard about it today." Weise was expected to arrive in Montreal on Monday night and practise with the Canadiens on Tuesday morning, while Diaz was set to meet up with his new teammates the same day in Boston. Both Weise and Diaz will get a chance to face their old teams this week when the Canadiens host the Canucks on Thursday night at the Bell Centre. Billige Nike Air Max .

Lack replaced an injured Roberto Luongo late in the first period then watched defenceman Chris Tanev score the winning goal midway through the third as the Vancouver Canucks defeated the Jets 2-1 in a tight NHL game.Conor McGregor’s rematch against Nate Diaz is still not official but remains the preferred fight for the Irishman’s team. The UFC featherweight champion stepped up two weight divisions earlier this month but lost by submission to Diaz, who was a short-notice replacement for Rafael Dos Anjos.A potential rematch with Diaz has been suggested for the milestone UFC 200 event in July, held at Las Vegas brand new arena, but McGregors striking coach Owen Roddy has insisted that they havent been approached yet. If he beats Jose Aldo again, what does that really say? Frankie Edgar? That could possibly be the one. Rafael Dos Anjos? I dont think he wants the fight. McGregors coach Owen Roddy I havent heard it from Conors mouth yet so its just speculation at the moment, Roddy exclusively told Sky Sports. It seems to be the case but its not 100 percent yet.If he does what we have planned now, he can beat Diaz on the second occasion. It makes for the most exciting fight.If he beats Jose Aldo again, what does that really say? Frankie Edgar? That could possibly be the one. Dos Anjos? I dont think he wants the fight.But if Conor goes back and puts Diaz away, that would be amazing. Owen Roddy (right) is the man behind McGregors KO wins McGregor & Rousey: What now? How will UFC star duo react to defeat? McGregor, the 145lbs champion, was due to challenge for Dos Anjos 155lbs belt until the Brazilian withdrew, to be replaced by Diaz. Concerns about Diazs short-notice weight cut meant the hastily arranged fight was set at a 170lbs limit.Despite Diaz being ranked at No 6 in the lightweight (155lbs) division, Roddy insists McGregors team have no problem with revisiting welterweight (170lbs).He said: Its looking like 170 again but that isnt confirmed. Conor probably wants to prove it was a small mistake and he slipped up. I saw claims that the issue was fighting above his weight, but realistically Conorr walks around at the weight he was fighting at on that night.dddddddddddd Roddy insists weight isnt an issue for McGregor But everything still has to be confirmed. Until it is, its up in the air. Conor will get the offers, and it will be basically whatever he wants. Hell put it to [head coach] John Kavanagh, who gives his opinion, and we go from there. Ill go with whatever Conor wants because I really do believe he beats everybody. I dont care who they put in front of him in those weight categories.Confidence from the Irish camp stems from a belief that McGregor was comfortably beating Diaz until tiring in the second round, leading to his downfall.Roddy, responsible for McGregors striking training, thinks a few minor adjustments would result in another knockout victory. McGregor landed plenty of early punches against Nate Diaz He was winning the fight but punched himself out, Roddy said. He was trying to force the finish. He was landing his shots but, because Diaz was able to take them, Conor was throwing higher and higher combinations and got exhausted. The tables turned.Conor is smart, he read it very well. He believed he was trying to knock him out with every punch and was putting too much behind every shot. If we get him to only put power behind certain shots, he should reserve his energy more.In the build-up to the fight we had him moving a lot more but he didnt seem to do it because he was landing his shots and wanted to put the guy away. In the training, we had Conor counter-striking. Because he was landing so early, he got himself tired. If we stick to popping shots and moving, I think hell put Diaz away.
