In a game where Staal, McDonagh and Girardi were steaming piles of crap, the post-game thread is filled with people *****ing about Del Zotto (our best d-man this game) and MZA. It would be amusing if it weren't so predictable.

Oh, and to the posters snarking about people believing that MDZ is an offensive defenseman, he pretty clearly is. The problem is that your line for such a role is Brian Leetch. MDZ is certainly no Leetch, and he's not one of the elite PMD's in the game, but any defenseman who scores near half a point per game is going to be viewed by any non-biased source as a pretty damn good offensive defenseman.
He has his talents offensively. I definitely agree. It is too bad that he often makes the same mistakes defensively.
