Yeah that makes zero sense. Oilers wouldn't give up any of Eberle, Hall or RNH. Highly doubt they'd exchange Schultz or Yakupov for Del Zotto, and I have zero interest in Pajaarvi. So.. that leaves a whole lot of nothing.
The idea that Slats would threaten MDZ with shipping him off to Edmonton to freeze would make more sense than the actual rumor.
Probably nothing other than Glen posturing and leaking:
Rangers Report @rangersreport
To clarify, Rangers can't sign Del Zotto until CBA ratified, but they are not close on $ I'm hearing.
Del Zotto, an RFA, is apparently looking for a deal worth north of $3 million per year, while the Rangers reportedly offered Del Zotto a two or three year deal at upward of $2.5 million per before the lockout.
