Not only that, he has been doing what you want to see from young defenceman and that is rounding out his game.
He was a defensive liability when putting up those 11 points you mention and he came back like a different player last season.
Still not enough to get Nikitn and Tyutin.
Since when has HF ever been about fairness? Its either Del Zotto is a consistent 40+ point player at 22 and Nikitin is an unproven NHL player who was lucky, or Del Zotto is inconsistent, sucks defensively and Nikitin is on pace to be 50 point two way d-man next year.
I'm not saying Del Zotto is bad, but its still a terrible trade for the Jackets at this point.
