If Del Zotto is healthy, how many goals will he score in an offensive system?

He is not passing Leetch, Park, Howell or Patrick all that easily.
I've seen the entire careers of all these guys except for Howell. McDonagh looks to me to easily rank above Greschner, Patrick, Ruotsolainen, Beukeboom, Maloney and Lowe unless you want to count his time as an Oiler. You might want to move Barry Beck into the mix though. I'd rank Staal ahead of most of this list as well.
James Patrick was a very good player but he never really became a top NHL defenseman. IMO he was more of a heady skill player and not very physical and to be honest getting Steve Larmer for him was a good deal for the Rangers. Ruotsolainen was an offensive force but very small and not great defensively. Best comparable here to DZ though Reijo was smaller but a better skater and quite a bit more creative.
