I wonder how many of those who voted for Nashville have watched Del Zotto often. Or if they’re going on 1st round name recognition. As a Rangers fan I can attest that it’s looking less and less likely that MDZ will ever come close to reaching his potential. He’s regressed for years. I wish him the best, and hope he can turn it around. But for the Rangers, there was no way they were gonna qualify him when he’s been simply awful most nights for awhile. Plus, NYR needed a right handed physical D and NSH needed left and (hopefully) offense. The Rangers didn’t get fleeced, they got something they needed for a rapidly-depreciating asset.
David Poile at it again!
This is awesome… I can’t wait to see it grow as the trade deadline approaches.
I almost would have liked the “cap reasons or neither” option. Rats!
Good point Chris, I’ll add those on the next one(s).
