So what would you guys offer for a 21 year old PMD top defenseman? He is a RFA, his stats this season:

Reg season: GP:77, G:10 , A: 31, Points: 41 +20.

Playoff: GP: 20, G: 2, A:8, Points: 10, -4. After his grandma died (during the Devils series) his defensive game went down and he made some mistakes.

He has a high ceiling.

Rangers need a top 4 RD, a rightie that is good in all zones. Good in his own zone and good enough to have on the ice when it's PP (powerplay) time.
Rangers will keep Del Zotto at all costs. Their handedness is irrelevant in the bigger picture as the blueshirts are built around big, shot-blocking, stay at home guys. A puck-mover like Del Zotto, especially since he's homegrown, will be resigned. Look for him to make $3-4m next year.
