Del Zotto likely has lost concentration on his game, and he's over thinking the play all too often. But he has a skillset and IQ that Gilroy just doesn't have. He'll also hit every once in a while, which is a nice addition to the offensive dynamo that he already is. While Gilroy.....eh.
Agree completely and just to clarify if i had to keep one it would certainly be MDZ as MDZ's Ceiling>>>>Gilroy's. However, right now, with a very young D-Core I'd rather have Gilly in the lineup then MDZ. He has played like an AHL'r nearly all season and thats where he belongs. Absolutely no shame in that either.
