if a shut down is more a need then i understand... but to say mdz is a mediocre depth player is silly.. hes not the best defender but hes got plenty of upside and growth potential to be a stud in this league.. hes already put up 40pts in 3 out of 4yrs and played top 4 mins..he's a top 4 dman and if available any team would jump at trying to acquire him..

he was almost acquired by you guys for ROR before he was signed in Feb.. Slats backed off bc he wanted another dman back in the trade but avs said no.. im sure it was closer then most people expect..
