MDZ has been an underachiever for years but he does bring some much needed offensive upside to the table. Given that VAN retained part of his salary, I see this trade as a win for ANA...but we'll see what happens. ANA is clearly in desperation mode.
I'll give Vancouver a bit of an edge with the pick and that I like schenn. Both are turnover machines but I think Vancouver wanted a penalty killer and a guy with lots of grit and they got that with schenn
Del Zotto was at least playing in the Nhl. Schenn was drafted 5th overall in 2008 and is in the AHL now
Del Zaster was not playing in the NHL. He was sitting in a press box as the 7th or 8th Dman only used in extreme emergencies (Bubonic Plague/Cholera outbreak). At the time of the trade he was behind Gudbranson, Pouliot and Biega. In Schenn, the farm got some help. The 7th rounder is the deciding factor.
