Del Zotto / Tavares traded to London Knights (OHL) [DZ Still Rangers property]
 
Dont worry guys, hes still with the Rangers but he has been traded from the Oshawa Generals to the London Knights along with John Tavares. I dont know that much about the OHL but i do know that Oshawa was struggling even with these two superstars and now the Knights should be pretty damn strong.

I'd say this is a good day for his development.

So did i, please change that title.

Trxjw 01-08-2009 12:59 PM

Wow. The Knights just went from really good to ridiculous.

I know Prospect Park wanted DZ to go to Brampton, but London isn't too bad when it comes to molding NHL players as far as I know.

Trxjw 01-08-2009 01:01 PM

Changed the title. Hopefully a little less panic-inducing.

You ain't kidding.

Here's a list:

Jason Allison, Brian Bradley, Fred Brathwaite, Dino Ciccarelli, Dan Fritsche, Sam Gagner, Dan Girardi, Patrick Kane, Sergei Kostitsyn, Dave Lowry, Steve Mason, Rick Nash, Corey Perry, Kyle Quincey, Rob Ramage, Darryl Sittler, Steve Smith, Dennis Wideman, Brendan Shanahan. Of course a lot of those are pre Hunters, but still.....London breeds good NHLers.

London is stacked now. You'll see JT and MDZ's point totals go sky high.

NYR Viper 01-08-2009 02:03 PM

Great for DZ, Im hoping for Doyle to get moved next.

Bluenote13 01-08-2009 02:18 PM

Good for DZ, he'll get good expeience playing in the Memorial Cup.

Dan Fritsche does not belong on that list with good NHLers

Not to mention London already has the most players taken first overall in the NHL entry draft and JT could very well be the third player in the last 8 years with that distinction.

Really looking forward to seeing these two for the rest of the season! Damn good day to be a Knights fan :D

how do u make trades in juniors? what can be of value to get back for a tavares and del zotto?

Sm0otHocKeySPeeD 01-08-2009 04:56 PM

Yea who the hell did they get in return for those guys?

If I was a jr team with a guy like Tavares, I'd think twice about trading him.

What was the motive behind this trade? I'm clueless when it comes to transactions in the jr's.

Gennies will need to rebuild in coming years and they are getting 4 2nd round and 2 3rd round picks in return as well as 3 players. Oshawa also gave up a goalie named Borden as part of this deal.

It's all about the picks and hoping to build a marketable product in the future in the post JT era.
