Del Zotto blows and we don't trade with the Rangers anyway, so it's irrelevant.

 

This.  Del Zotto's a +23 because he plays on a team with the best goalie in the league.  He doesn't drive play at even strength, so whatever he gives you on the offensive end he gives away at the other end - exactly the kind of player I'd like for this team to avoid.

He's a 22 year old defenseman who put up good offensive numbers, many teams would take a chance on him. The Rangers will definitely get something nice in return if they decide to trade him.

At this point, he'll probably yield as much in a trade as Tim Erixson. He can put up points, but he's really a defensive liability.

I actually wonder whether MDZ was offered as part of the Nash trade, but Columbus said no.

Bingo.

I watch players like Letang and Mike Greene play big minutes and kinda chuckle. They're very good offensively, but such a liability on D, but they still see huge minutes every game.

I still couldn't believe how badly he positioned himself on the Henrique goal.

Or how he let Parise squeeze by him on the Zajac goal in game 4. Sort of thing that would banish you to Salvador territory in the eyes of message board posters here.

I thought it was Girardi-McDonagh on the ice for the climactic moment of the series?  Del Zotto did have a million other mistakes in the series (then attributed to his grandmother dying, but he had a similarly bad playoffs this year I think), but that one wasn't him.

Wait you're right. I was thinking of Girardi behind the net.

There are a few friends of mine that are rags fans that I would consider intelligent hockey fans and they absolutely hate Del Zotto. Then you have the rest if the rags fan base that says he will be the next coming if Brian leetch. I consider myself a Die hard Devils fan but also a hockey fan in general so it's nice to be able to talk about other teams with people that don't spew homer bs all the time. Point I'm getting at is that the rags fans who know the game and watch their team every game all year know that DZ is a total plug. The only people that tell you he is great are the NY media and the dumbass rangers fans that just spew bs all the time.

Roman Josi signs in Nashville - 7 years, 28M.  Not a great sign for Adam Larsson, though the Predators did buy 3 UFA years with that.

If we signed Larsson to that deal, he'd be 28, which means we'd only be buying one year.

Unless Larsson has a great upcoming season he won't get 3m per year. As of right now I would do 1.5 ish give or take some

Since Larsson started playing in 2011-2012 he will hit UFA after the 2017-2018 season.  So a 7 years deal on Larsson's next contract would also buy you 3 UFA years.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

The way hes been improving make it look like a pretty good deal. He was playing on their top D pairing with Weber a bit and looked very good in the World Championships this year.

Oh wow, I didn't realize that. If Larsson doesn't take a step forward next year, he has no incentive to sign a long term deal

im absolutely petrified to the idea of losing both Elias, Clarkson, Zid and not being able to sign any free agent and that Zajac and Henrique doesnt step up and Larsson doesnt step up either and that our goalies sh!t the bed and we finish in the bottom 5 of the draft next year....

 

and quite honestly... its not that far fetch and its even more horrifying

I'm going to go the other way and say that is very far fetched.
