RFA Michael Del Zotto was one of 14 Rangers at the practice facility for an informal skate today and discussed his contract situation with Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record…
“I’m here and I’m preparing for Sept. 21 training camp. All I can do is prepare for the start of the season and the rest of the stuff is out of my control. I’ve been around a couple of years, I understand it’s a business. I’m preparing for the start of training camp.”
…i wouldn’t say that his contract negotiations are out of his control. He could have easily accepted the $2.2 to $2.5 million offers the Rangers have been submitting to him.
…listen I don’t begrudge anyone for wanting to get paid, but if Del Zotto thinks he’s worth more than he’s being offered he’s going to be very unhappy and maybe ultimately on another team.
