Well, going by that, then the jury is still out on Del Zotto. But yes, Nikitin hasn't proven anything yet and I'd be shocked if he didnt regress at least a bit on those totals.

This has nothing to do with Del Zotto, you could have said McDonagh and I would have given you the same response. Tyutin and Nikitin were a very effective pairing and for Columbus fans who watched the game, they got to see that. The main problem was most of the year they had nothing else on the back end. I'd rather have a good pair that works well together than one bit better d-man.
