Del Zotto is a coveted piece around the NHL, and the rationale is selling high on a guy who is both slightly redundant (fact, we have plenty of LD's) and overvalued (IMO, relies too heavily on his partner, too little impact at ES).

Maybe he'll come alive under a new coach, but he was our worst regular defenceman bar Eminger at ES this year. With a healthy lineup, that makes him our #6D and he'd have to play the right side.

To me, it is a no-brainer to pull the trigger on a deal for a similarly valued forward. Who that may be is another question, Marcus Johansson, Evgeny Kuznetsov, Charlie Coyle, Jaden Schwartz, Nick Bjugstad?
