You're right, Del Zotto's job is to play defense, except the thing is, he is highly valued (or was) because of his offensive skillset. Del Zotto is never going to be a great defensive D-Man. It's his all around game that was supposed to off-set his mental lapses on defense.

For a guy who's value is highly relative to his offense, he misses the net far to much. It is completely unacceptable. That shot tonight (and he was the least of the problems tonight) was awful. No one in front of him, 10 feet out from the net and he misses it by a good five feet wide.
