MICHAEL DEL ZOTTO RUMORS

Why Signing Michael Del Zotto was a Great Move by the Flyers

#481011485 / gettyimages.com Ron Hextall has had some very tough decisions since becoming the general manager of the Philadelphia Flyers, but by far his best choice so far is the signing of Michael Del Zotto.

The irony of the Flyers signing Del Zotto

Recently, Flyers general manager Ron Hextall talked about his team’s signing of former Rangers defenseman and scapegoat Michael Del Zotto to the NY Post. He basically chalked up Del Zotto’s struggles with the Rangers over the past two seasons to him being easily ‘distracted’ by the big lights of NYC since he’s a young player: “We look at continue reading...

Could Del Zotto’s return to form represent a dilemma?

If Del Zotto finds form, can the Rangers afford to let him go? With Michael Del Zotto back in the line-up consistently and finally cobbling together some consistent form the likely trade suitors will increase as Del Zotto starts to rack up the assists (3 in his last 4 games). Of course, with Del Zotto improving in recent weeks (as has most of the roster) the Rangers stand to benefit...

Rangers Rumors: Del Zotto Finally On The Move?

For the past few years, Michael Del Zotto, has treated us to a very Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde style of hockey. His rookie season, at just the age of 19, he drew comparisons to Brian Leetch as he showed a ton of offensive upside. His sophomore season saw him bouncing around between the NHL and […]

Michael Del Zotto is safe in New York, for now

Del Zotto needs to improve, and he will be given the time to do so. Michael Del Zotto is a whipping boy for many, and his underwhelming season hasn’t helped him convince certain groups of fans –and media– of his long-term future being in New York.

Checking in on the Michael Del Zotto contract situation

The last thing that the Rangers as an organization need to do is to get RFA Michael Del Zotto under contract. When we last wrote about this,  Larry Brooks was on record saying that the Rangers offered MDZ a multi-year deal in the $2.5 million range.

Player Review: Michael Del Zotto

The player review you've all been waiting for. Michael Del Zotto was and still is one of the more debated names on the New York Rangers roster amongst fans.

The cost of locking up Del Zotto

In keeping up with the offseason trend of articles here at BSB, we wanted to take some time to discuss locking up perhaps the most important free agents on the market, our own.
