Very good two-way center with excellent face-off abilities. Isn't a physical shutdown presence but is one of the hardest players to play against thanks to his hockey sense. Has a decent shot and very good vision with the puck. Doubled his production last season after finally getting significant time at ES and on the PP. Busts his ass every shift. Has 65-70 point upside with elite defensive play.
Original rumor was that after we expressed interest in him, Colorado came back to us and asked about swapping Del Zotto for ROR. We asked for a defensemen in return. Once we did that, the Avs asked for Del Zotto plus someone the Rangers didn't want to give up and the talks broke off.
