I don't see any realistic scenario in which the Rangers move Del Zotto, particularly when you factor Staal's injury concerns into the equation. I also don't see any threat to MDZ's place on the team from John Moore. I'm no mind reader, but I can easily imagine the Rangers FO picturing a pair of first pairings-- MDZ/McIlrath and McD/Girardi. I think they've been thinking about that MDZ/McIlrath pair ever since they drafted McI.
Marc Staal was selected to the All-Star team when he was 23. Del Zotto is not better than him at the same age.
