Nashville Trying To Move Michael Del Zotto

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).

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.
