We have seen this a lot since Erixon's recent callup, but it had been done on and off earlier in the season.

How do you NYR fans think Del Zotto has performed on the right side? What I have seen is his performance defensively significantly declined,and his offense has not been huge since the switch either.
Valid point but I think he is still hurt from the hip pointer or whatever he got when he hit the post. The other night instead of hitting someone with his right hip, which was closest to the other player, he turned his body to get a piece of the player.

I'd like to see him healthier before saying his play has regressed because he's playing on a different side.
