Would love Zanon. I remember when he was on the Wild the Kings had a close to full 2 minute 5-3 PP, and Zanon was one of the d-men with I think Burns. Both D got caught in the Wild's end for pretty much the whole 5-3. Zanon was all over the place blocking shots and passing lanes but couldn't get the puck out of the zone. When Backstrom covered the puck for a whistle Zanon literally just fell over in the crease from being so tired and lay there for a second. Became an instant fan of the guy! Isn't he getting up there in age though? 34-35? Could be a cheap stop gap until a long-term replacement could be found.
