We lack offense, so why move our defensemen with the most offensive potential? Especially one that has shown good production on the PP...which is a major headache for this team.
Also, there's no question that we have a strength on defense in general, but my gut tells me that you move players when the league sentiment is positive on them. That's how you get the most value. If we move Del Zotto now after a disappointing year that probably has teams around the league feeling luke-warm on him, how much value can we get back?
I'd think it's much more wise to look into dealing McD. He too is young and was a high draft pick, except he's coming off a year where he took a step forward. Teams around the league have to have taken notice of this. Plus, I think he projects to be more of a defensive dman...which would be dealing from a position of strength within a position of strength.
