Even more mind blowing when I consider how young he is and how close he was to becoming an after thought/trade chip.
You read between the lines just a bit and it's not too hard to see how far his stock dropped last season. Here, of course, but also in the org. from the things one reads and hears.
Del Zotto has stunned a lot of folks. Some will admit it, most will not. Whether it's Torts, the coaches, the execs (Sather, Gorton, Clark,) or the legacies (Mess, Gravy), the Rangers have a way of helping troubled or bubble players straighten their $%^& out. It's amazing to me.
