it's not like he is going to be playing top pairing(possibly not even top 4!) minutes. he's not a gamebreaker. doesn't help our PP anymore than any other defenseman.

he's a good player, but come on. what do you honestly think he deserves, 4m!? no ******* way. 2-2.5m or send him packing. we want him, but he's not worth 4m. not 3m. probably wouldn't give him 2.5. let him get some consistency before we give him those numbers.

del zotto wants to be here. no doubt in my mind we can get him for under 3. we're probably the best competitor in the league. a cup is worth $2m to these kids.
He averaged 21:39 in the playoffs and has better numbers than Carlsson, who is coming off a -15 season. Del Zotto has improved his game drastically since his sophomore slump.

MDZ was also voted 12th for the Norris.
