In other words, any trade involving DZ where DZ happens to be the best player in the deal will backfire. Especially if Stralman and/or Girardi leave or hit pay dirt.

I'm less worried about Girardi and Stralman than I am Staal in any MDZ trade. MDZ doesn't really offer any coverage on the right side, so having him doesn't help us if G or Strals leave. If Staal doesn't regain form, however, we are so screwed without Del Zotto. Staal has been putrid for most of the season, and if he doesn't recover his form, who do we have behind McD on the left side? John "wait, that was my guy?" Moore? Brady Skjei is still a few years away. If MDZ is traded and Staal's injuries have indeed turned him into...this, then we are screwed on the left side.
