I've watched two Rangers games after the del Zotto rumors broke and they basically confirmed my view of del Zotto. He's slow, especially the first steps. He got completely schooled in a footrace by a Habs forward today. He's a bit passive in his own zone (could be Rangers system) and ends up stationary in front of goal most of the time but seems to think the game well enough both offensively and defensively. Once he engages in the defensive zone he is able to hold his own physically, even if he's never going to be the strongest player. Has a strong pass but will not rush the puck.

I like him but I don't love him. I think if we were to swap O'Reilly for him straight up, we'd lose the trade by quite a bit. I think Avs are right in asking for another valuable piece.
