With (Michael Del Zotto), I thought he was terrific last night. This is part of a huge step for Michael: Stay there now. This is where he’s fluctuated before.

“Stralsy, we went after hard last year and raised his level,” Tortorella added. “He has not done that right now and we’re still OK there. If we can just get him to play a little bit better…We need to stay with that until we get some other things fixed for us to get some consistency."
Maybe if we can get Beaver to play a little better...

What the heck has Stralman done, except for play at the level which his contract and roster spot indicate?
