A week and a half after floating the idea of the Rangers trading Michael Del Zotto to the Islanders, Arthur Staple at Newsday now reports that Glen Sather and Garth Snow had a conversation a few weeks ago, but the Islanders GM was not interested in a possible deal with their long time rival.
Staple adds that he doesn't know what the offer was, but insinuates Del Zotto was involved.
…as I said last week, I'd rather the Rangers keep Del Zotto and have him single-handedly prevent them from winning a Stanley Cup than trading him to the Islanders and see him become a dominant force for them.
…i'd love to hear what Sather was asking for in exchange if it was for Del Zotto. Ryan Strome (5th overall in 2011) would look real nice in a Blueshirt. lol
…a legit trade could be Del Zotto for Cal Clutterbuck. That guy hits everything that moves and would give the Rangers that physical element they're sorely lacking. Has three years left on his contract at $2.75M per.
