Jeff Klein at the New York Times reports that, despite earlier reports that he has signed, Michael Del Zotto is still weighing an offer to play with Rapperswil-Jona Lakers of the Swiss N.L.A. Del Zotto has until tomorrow to accept the offer... “Nothing is signed, and Michael is considering,” Del Zotto's agent Mark Guy said. “The offer from this club is good for 48 hours, so he has to decide in that period.” If Del Zotto signs with the Rapperswil-Jona Lakers they will cover his insurance. ...good to hear Del Zotto will at least have some sort of insurance. However a that insurance won't help him get a new contract if he suffers a devastating injury. Remember to follow me on Twitter & Facebook or e-mail me at nyrfan94@yahoo.com.
