I've already gone over Del Zotto's value a few pages back. It's hard to ignore his production in his still young career, however, some here do. He is crucial to this team's offense, especially the PP. Good skating ability and vision for outlet passes are huge.
I think Kreider is the biggest X factor for this squad this year. They need him to be productive. And I think his best opportunity for that to happen will be playing with Nash. But they certainly need him to produce to get them into the playoffs.
But yes, it is frustrating to see the complainers and nay sayers on this board constantly put down the team they claim they support.
with Hagelin possibly out to start the season, we just might see Kreider with Stepan and Nash early on.
