Detroit Red Wings Rumors: Is Defenseman Michael Del Zotto Worth A Reclamation Project? | The Detroit Sports Site
It is clear that Del Zotto has a lot of personal issues, mostly related to work ethic. Many teams are turned off by this fact, as they should be, but, he could be worth a consideration, especially in our "dire" case.
