According to Darren Dreger at TSN, with the Rangers in Toronto tomorrow for their game against the Maple Leafs, Michael Del Zotto's agents will take the opportunity to speak with Blueshirts brass about the team's ongoing attempts to trade the embattled defenseman.
For the last few months, Del Zotto has been mentioned in trade rumors involving the Maple Leafs and Senators.
...makes sense since Del Zotto is likely to be stuck in the press box until Conor Allen proves he's not ready for the NHL. Which may never happen.
...a divorce is probably best for all involved, but having said that, I'd hate to see Sather give him away for nothing, so I'd have no problem with the Rangers hanging on to Del Zotto until the trade deadline and hopefully take advantage of a desperate team looking to make a splash.
It's what the rangers/sather does best.... Airs all the dirty laundry in the media for weeks and weeks and finally gets something done.... Disrupting the team focus along the way. Been like this for years MDZ trade will be mo different.
@TheNYRBlog Also rangers should be all over Kadri. He would be perfect for thos team
@TheNYRBlog Sather should try trading for Elder. Tortz would love girardi and Elder would fit AV's system
Call Yzerman and revisit the DelZotto for Stamkos trade. Maybe they've lost their...I mean changed their minds now. Hell, I'll even throw in ANYONE else as well as front row seats to Billy Joel for as long as he plays at MSG.
While I definitely expect DZ to be one of the two, did you see this? Makes me believe switch might be made... https://twitter.com/stevezipay/status/419145787025920000
You still can't give away a 23 year old dman who has shown flashes of exactly who we need on the blue line. This is a trade that will burn the Rangers badly I feel if made.
@mando24179 Probably the most sensible move. By the way, what happened to the Methot rumor? .... I thought the argument that Del Zotto still has huge upside but needs a change of scenery was a good one. He does have potential, just not with us at this time. He is worth something, The question is, what and to who?
@JohnScibior @TheNYRBlog I'm sure Elder wants to get out of Vancouver. After the way Tortorella ripped into him on TV against the Rangers, I'd want to get out of there too. There is no call or no justification for such incredible disrespect.
Nevermind...looks like D staying the same lol.
I don't want to give MDZ for nothing but at this point it would be best for both sides to just end this before it gets worse.
@AlanPuddingWhat flashes have you seen?
By sitting him like this his value drops to the bottom of the ocean. Teams are not as desperate for him as we are to unload him. Sather usually does we'll in trades but he waited too long on this one.
