Del Zotto has always been an erratic player, but AV and the organization may have made the situation even worse.

We know that Del Zotto has always struggled with consistency, both offensively and defensively, throughout his career, but AV came in here expecting a more consistent player. Both AV and the organization are to blame for these expectations - if AV watched more tape over the summer instead of having a "clean slate," he would have anticipated some of the deficiencies in DZ's game. And management screwed up by misrepresenting what type of player DZ is by blowing smoke up his ass instead of being honest about his shortcomings.

So instead of having a coaching staff that can help DZ become more consistent, we now have coach and a player that are not on the same page. AV admitted they don't have the best relationship and I can't imagine a scenario in which DZ would thrive in this environment. But now his trade value has diminished and he is stuck here as a healthy scratch for the time being.
