Don't think anybody was really saying this, and I actually was suggesting DZ be part of the Nash trade a year ago.

The guy is supposed to be an offensive defenseman but has one of the most average shots I've seen. His only real strength is stretch passes, which is great and all but there's more to the game than that. His shot is bad, his decision making is bad on both ends of the ice, his defensive awareness is TERRIBLE. If I have to see DZ just sprawl out on the ice instead of trying to make a defensive play one more time I'm going to throw my TV out the window.

DZ has high value, and the Rangers have other needs to address. In McDonagh, Staal, and Moore the Rangers have the best left side in the entire league. If Staal is going to be healthy going forward, you have to seriously explore trying to move DZ for a piece that can fit in right now.
