MDZ certainly has the potential for 10+ goals. He has the skills even though his skating is slightly above average. If you look at his stats from the two full seasons he has played (2009-10, 2011-12), Del Zotto has hit 9 and 10 goals respectively; and this is when he was the beneficiary of Torts' system that encouraged the defense to pinch down low.

It remains to be seen if Vigneault will allow the defensemen to pinch, but having a dedicated assistant coaching staff in Samuelsson and Arniel would also be beneficial (e.g. Working on fundamentals at practice... Getting shots on goal quickly & accurately?)

I'll go out on a limb and predict that MDZ scores 13-15 goals this season.
