Could be getting to the point where a guy like DZ might be expendable for forward help.
I agree with you. DZ has struggled ever since the game in Toronto. He makes a lot of mistakes in the defensive zone, and is also prone to "del zaster" plays in the neutral zone or along the boards that lead to odd man rushes against. I know he's good on the rush, but his production this year has been down compared to years past. Out of our 4 core defensemen (Staal, DZ, G, McD), I'd be more than happy to move DZ first for another winger that can score to supplement Nash's offense.
