[Eklund] Del Zotto to Nucks for.....

Doesn't quite make sense considering he is a lefty

"First off, and I honestly am just reporting this because of the source being very reliable, the Canucks have major interest in Rangers D-man Michael Del Zotto and could be willing to part with a major offensive player to make it happen. Knowing Vigneault as I know you all do....the name shouldn't be too hard to figure out..."

What? This makes no sense for Vancouver at all??

MDZ is NOT what we need right now. If anything it'd have to be Edler/Booth/Weise for Brassard/Boyle/MDZ. Or Booth for Brassard (fresh start for both players). We need offensive bodies and makes no sense to lose forwards for a Dmen which we're already deep in.

Like most Eklund rumours, I just don't see this happening.

I think with Eklund, it's more that he plays up what his sources say. I do believe he has sources that know things, but it's more of that maybe, for example, the Canucks called for him once, but who knows if anything will come from it, as calls are made everyday. The odds of anything he says happening are most likely the odds of how many calls lead to actual deals.

Our defense is fine.

And not sure how NYR can just part ways with Del Zotto. Esp. when Staal's apparent decline.

I would be more interested in Brassard, Callahan, and/or Boyle. Callahan especially. Callahan's a lot like Kesler. His team goes as he goes, but he's injured a lot. But we're not getting of these guys at the moment.

Del Zotto sucks. Torts knows this. No deal. People who like Del Zotto only like him because of his name, and have never watched him play.

His skating is terrible for a puck mover. I wouldn't even consider him a puck mover since he's slow. He's more of a PP specialist at best. His defensive game is horrible.

Could be Santorelli. AV doesn't know him, but he seems like an AV kind of player. Also Burr. He hasn't had the greatest start. Still don't want him to go. I would part with Santorelli if it meant getting that boost in the powerplay. Also, Boyle would have to come too, as we need a 3rd or 4th line center.
