But, seriously. I like both of those players, but trading Del Zotto for either player ultimately requires you to make an additional move for another defender. I like Moore and McIlrath and the upside they both have, but until either of those guys can prove they can reliably play 20 minutes a night, trading one of our top-4 defenders is going to open up a hole that will need to be filled ricky-tick.
I disagree. If McIlrath can show he will be ready by next season, I see no reason why:

McDonagh-Girardi
Staal-Stralman
Moore-McIlrath

Couldn't get the job done as far as a top-6. I would obviously hope they bring back Eminger and maybe sign another d-man for depth purposes.
