He's okay enough defensively that he needs to focus more on the things he does the best. And for the Rangers when you have a point man putting up 50 point + seasons then you're pwp shouldn't be too shabby.
IMO his strength and size are fine and he plays a physical game. His drawbacks are his skating and his mentality. He isn't an awful skater, but he could be better.

Hopefully under Vigneault's system, new power play scheme, and what ever insights Samuelsson has, can get Del Zotto to break out.
