Buzz: The Rangers Are Trying Very Hard To Get Michael Del Zotto Under Contract

In the NY Post, Larry Brooks writes that the Rangers and representatives for Michael Del Zotto are not that close on a new contract.

Del Zotto, an RFA, is reportedly getting an offer of between $2.2 and $2.5 million from the Rangers.

Brooks writes that there is pressure on Del Zotto to sign before the CBA expires as there could be less money for the Rangers to give Del Zotto.

Del Zotto had a cap hit of $1.087 million on his entry level deal.
