McDonagh and Sauer should be in no way compared to Del Zotto. Both have been more than capable d-men and need to work on there offensive game.

Del Zotto's defensive game was awful this year and actually regressed this year. To compare there games is asinine.

I dunno what games you've been watching but Sauer and McD have both been very capable top 4 d-men this year.

Maybe i went a little overboard saying that McD would be a top 4 on many teams but i guarantee this kid is going to be a stud in the NHL. Maybe not an elite d-man (ala pronger) but someone who can definitely handle top pairing minutes.
