Maybe those Micheal Del Zotto to Ottawa rumors that seemed to die last week are back on, as Larry Brooks at the New York Post reports that two scouts from the Senators were in attendance last night.
Brooks adds that the Blackhawks also had a pair of front office personnel in attendance, while Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli, who scouted the Rangers’ game in Montreal Nov. 16, also watched from the press box.
…looks like that Del Zotto goal against Vancouver has rekindled some interest, unfortunately, his -3 last night likely quelled any sparks rather quickly. Despite Rangers fans disdain for Del Zotto, I do think he has some value on the trade market and Sather is just waiting on the right deal to come along.
…and I do want to mention, despite my constant criticism of Del Zotto, my perfect scenario for the embattled defenseman is for him to figure it out with the Rangers and be a productive player for the Blueshirts for the next decade.
…as for Blackhawks and Bruins scouts being in attendance, I'll take Lucic for Pyatt and Toews for Pouliot. Get er done Slats!!!!
