As far as Del Zotto is concerned, he should never have been picked by us with Eberle and Carlson still on the board back in 2008.
McDonagh can absolutely end up in that group, and Staal's sudden offensive game this season makes it possible for him as well.

And as far as DZ is concerned, i'm absolutely fine with the team picking him where they did. Carlson isn't significantly better than him and in regards to Eberle you can't be a psychic and realize how great he's gonna be.
