I may not be able to sway most of you with facts..But i feel if Del Zotto wasnt behind Girardi, Staal, Mcdonagh And had some time on the Rangers first pairing

A) The rangers would be in a better posistion
B) He would have a slightly increased stat totals and would be viewed more highly on this board...

Not taking anything away from OEL he is going to be a stud someday...there are just plenty players out there more valueable at this point...

To the person asking to point out the more valueables...

See ( Stamkos, Crosby, Malkin, Letang, Karlsson ) Before OEL
OEL with the offensive talent MDZ plays with would probably have much better stats. And the opposite would happen for MDZ in Phoenix. OEL is also a better two-way guy.

Not going to argue aside from that though, its your opinion and thats fine, I along with many others I am sure simply disagree because of OEL's importance to the Yotes.
