Del Zotto Can Play

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

The case for trading Michael Del Zotto essentially is this: Alain Vigneault seems to have as much use for the defenseman as John Tortorella did for Chris Kreider.

Seriously, all you hear from the Rangers coach is what Del Zotto doesn’t do, rather than what he does.

The case against trading Del Zotto is essentially this: He alone among the team’s defensemen is capable of handling top-three minutes on either side if injury strikes McDonagh, Dan Girardi or Marc Staal.

The case for giving away Del Zotto cannot be made.

By the way, one NHL general manager talking to Slap Shots last week about Dubinsky said this: “Dubinsky and [Ryan] Callahan … they were the identity of the Rangers.”

Now the identity of the Rangers is Null and Void.
