Read: Michael Del Zotto’s Spot As A Top Under 23 Player

At Puck Prospectus, Corey Pronman ranked his top 50 players under 23 years of age.

Ranked 28th is Rangers defenseman Michael Del Zotto.

He writes that the people he talks to “rave” about Del Zotto’s ability to create offense and do so off the rush.

Pronman adds, “His defense still needs some work, but that area is steadily coming along, and given what he has done in the NHL so far, I have reason to be confident that he will be fine in that area at his peak while being a top of the line offensive producer.”

Defensemen ranked ahead of Del Zotto on this list are: Drew Doughty, Alex Pietrangelo, Erik Karlsson, Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Victor Hedman, Cam Fowler, Adam Larsson, Justin Faulk, Tyler Myers, Travis Hamonic, Zach Bogosian, John Carlson and Nick Leddy.

@Brendan   No amount of money can make you lie through your teeth about this atrocity.

Jets are going into this game with basically the same wide receivers as last season.....That group was rated 30th in the NFL....so who expects different results?

Get Amaro involved

You wanna bash Idzik for something ? Bash him for letting Lansanah go after a fantastic preseason where he outperformed everybody.

I don't know why I just got this feeling next year our head coach is going to be Harbaugh

Geno needs to be more decisive when he runs. teams seem to be spying him with a LB, but he hasnt been taking the yards quickly with his legs when it is there

Just watched a Bills player do some serious damage to his neck. Had his feet taken out from under him, and he landed (bounced) on the top his head.

What are the chances Vick sees 10+ snaps today?

@nesboogie 

I can think of other things as well but that is a start.

Actually prefer he be out than be hobbled by an ongoing hammy.   Rest it, get healthy, and come back @ 100% when ready.

@Kyle Ely more likely pettine is out and harbaugh is in. it's the cleveland way

0% unless Geno gets hurt

I'd say there is an 80% chance that Vick **should** play today (excluding Geno injury & gadget plays).

@DarrolRayFanClub @bradysucks 


haha....you really think a Decker injury today is why I think Idzik should be fired?


There are MANY reasons...... lack of depth is one of them..... not addressing weak areas of the team in 2 offseasons is another.......not playing to win.....money ball aka Oakland A's in a NY market......lol


Doesn't matter - the Jets play 16 games and the record will speak for itself.....Idzik put together a roster and he will be judged by ALL football fans - not just Jets fans who aren't objective.....


Jets are a laughingstock for a reason....Everytime the Jets are mentioned on TV the analysts literally start LAUGHING

I think there's a good chance we see Vick behind C to start the 2nd half if Geno stinks it up early-on.   Otherwise, we'll only see Vick in for MM's obligatory Wildcat package, which fools no one, kills the O's rhythm and goes for a 3 yard loss.

@a57se Without a pass rush they are. They're putrid.

I feel this may be the week we see Vick starting the second half as well if the offense is ineffective. I honestly can't tell if that's just wishful thinking on my part though. I would have a quick hook but then go back to Geno as starter next week.

@williamg1 We should just refer to Miami fans as "Hanks" from now on.
