Could Del Zotto’s return to form represent a dilemma?

If Del Zotto finds form, can the Rangers afford to let him go? With Michael Del Zotto back in the line-up consistently and finally cobbling together some consistent form the likely trade suitors will increase as Del Zotto starts to rack up the assists (3 in his last 4 games).
