Del Zotto is going to be really good and it's crazy how people already give up on him.
Only an idiot turns down Rick Nash to hold onto Del Zotto or especially a guy who has never played a game in the NHL.
Suggesting to trade Del Zotto acknowledges that he has value. That implies that he's a good player. Suggesting to trade a player doesn't necessarily mean anyone has "given up" on him. Quite the contrary, actually. We know he's good and has the potential to get better since he's so young. That's why his trade value is high. We need a player like Rick Nash more than we need a Del Zotto. Replace DZ with Nash and we're playing the Kings right now, without a shred of doubt.
I can't stand the overreaction on this board. So many of you are too afraid to trade ANYONE. You want to build a 100% home-grown team. It's not realistic. Good asset management requires trading GOOD players to acquire GOOD players that fill a more glaring need. Trading BAD players doesn't get you anything.
Have some balls.
