His offensive game is still there. Did you see that pass to Gabby last night? Perfection.

You are just the most negative person on our players. You did the same things with Marc Staal before eventually admitting you were W R O N G. Del Zotto is no different.
Guess you didn't read my last post. Yes, the past 4 games or so, he has been our best d-man and arguably our best player. There's no question he has great upside and he is very young with lotsa time to develop. The biggest issue I and others have had with him is his propensity to look completely lost on the defensive end(at times) and his inability to hit the net with his shot.
Time will tell with DZ but at some point, he needs to reach that next plateau and stay there w/o a return to those mind numbing decisions and turnovers in the defensive end.
