J.I.A.H.N Posted July 12, 2014 Share Posted July 12, 2014 Michael Del Zotto is a 24 year old offensive defenseman. He has had a 41 pt. NHL Season, and his worst +/- was -9. OK, here is my pitch. Sign Del Zotto to a 3 year $500,000 Utica minor league contract. Now with 3 years, he gets to play in the AHL and gain his confidence, and work on the defensive side of his game. Now he would not be owned by the Canucks, and therefore would not be counted against the cap. There is no re-entry waivers any more, therefore the Canucks could theoredically purchase his contract from Utica, which they control and own, and then negociate a nhl contract with him if he proves worthy as an offensive defenseman. It is a gamble for the Canuck owners, but if he came around, what a plumb it would be. Shadier things are done all the time! Is it legal? Thoughts?????
