Based on that line of thinking, we should never take the risk involved with ANY trades OR signings.

I'm not suggesting to trade him for the sake of trading him. I want to trade a player with value in a package with a few other pieces to fix our PRIMARY scoring problem.

Even if we were to trade DZ for Ovechkin, there's risk. DZ may go on to have a very successful career while Ovechkin could suffer a career-ending injury in his first practice as a Ranger and never play a game.

You're argument is completely irrelevant.

If we can add either of Schultz/Suter, or Sauer makes significant progress towards full recovery, it would be poor asset management to NOT explore the option of trading Del Zotto for a top 6 scorer.
