Del Zotto is often unfairly made the whipping boy for Rangers fans because the forwards are incompetent and can't score. So when a defenseman makes one mistake a game, they go crazy on him.
Not saying its a bad trade, but it leaves the Oil with 2 holes instead of one (and a GAPING hole at C until Nuge is ready to play), and if Rangers fans are going crazy on him, he won't last long in Edmonton.
