    Default Michael Del Zotto anyone?

    Michael Del Zotto among 'risky' free agents worth taking chance on - CBSSports.com

    He's still UFA and although he's had a couple of down years, one would have to think that he's not THAT broken.

    Thoughts?
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    He's a left shot, so presumably he'd have to outshine Regehr, Muzzin, McNabb or Martinez.

    I don't know. I don't see a fit

    Seems like a stretch. Do we even have the cap space to make an attempt?

    #5 D-man on a bad team, #6 D-man on decent team, #7 or 8 D-man on a good team.

    Teams need to know that going in and not hope for the 20th overall pick player that he once was thought of. He's now a depth player and/or an "insurance" player (for possible injuries). He'll be signed but not by the Kings, Bruins, or Canadiens (and obviously not the Rangers or Predators either).

    From there, he can dig himself out of the hole he's in. Maybe he will...

    I would think he would get at least $2M/year when he signs. He wouldn't make the Kings out of training camp unless you are getting rid of either RR, AM, or MG. He can't be a 7th defenseman because you lose Mcnabb on waivers then when you send him down (also cap issues with him being a 7th) and also Zotto can probably be a 5th D-Man somewhere else so why would he want to ride the pine here. Our D is set. In fact with the cap the way it is, the Kings still have to sign DK, so they will be up against it as soon as that happens. The team you see now, is the team you will see going to training camp, barring a last minute trade or cheap FA signing. I don't consider Del Zotto cheap.

    So the Kings let Mitchell walk due to not having room on the team, but they'll make room for Del Zotto?

    Would you like to point out to the rest of the class what Lombardi is smoking, Bueller?

    I think we are good to go with regard to left-shooting defensemen...
