It has not been established that Columbus is going to continue to make moves under the "rebuilding" umbrella. There's a lot of young talent, very little old talent, and the old talent is signed to short-term deals. Most of the young talent is not in their prime years.
Because trading for a 21 year old top-notch offensive defenseman would be a rebuilding move? Since when?
Therefore, the more likely course is to keep the hands off and see what happens. To gut the current blueline, which includes two pairings that showed excellent chemistry (at a high level, I might add) under difficult circumstances last season, in order to pick up a different piece
at the expense of one of those entire pairings
, would fly in the face of this.
Fair enough, but everything else you've said including your feeble attempts at jabs at Del Zotto has been terribly wrong. He had a sophomore slump and came back even stronger. Call it a funny feeling, if you will, but I THINK he's past that.
to do with whether Del Zotto is currently a better player than either Tyutin or Nikitin. It has nothing to do with whether he may become a much better player. It has
to do with whether a team that has a young core is going to decimate the entire blueline just as things are starting to come together.
No, this has everything to do what you want to discuss and what you want to discuss only. Due to the fact that you really can't argue anything else about Del Zotto aside from bringing up his sophomore slump, you refuse to see the point in which trading for an asset like him wouldn't be a "rebuilding move" and it would defenitely help Columbus in the long run. In fact, there's a good chance that Del Zotto would become Columbus' best defenseman. Not only did he make major strides defensively last season, he continued to show the offensive prowess he has on a team who had a rather pedestrian power play.
