Buzz: Michael Del Zotto Knows His Deal Will Get Done

Rangers defenseman Michael Del Zotto told Blueshirts United that he loves playing in New York and is confident that a new contract will get done.

He said “it’s is going to happen, it’s just something out of my control. I did my job this past year in trying to help the team win. Management and my agent are working things out. I love New York and understand the business side of things, too.”

John Tortorella said on the radio yesterday “Michael had a tremendous bounce back year, defended very well and had a very good playoff until the end. By no means are we trying to move Michael Del Zotto or lose him. We are looking to add more on the back end.”

The Rangers are believed to want Del Zotto back on a two-year deal worth between $1.75 and $2.25 million per season.
