Gold Dust Twins

Stan Fischler at MSG.com has a feature on, you guessed it, Matt Gilroy and Michael Del Zotto...

"Before the season started a few Nervous Nellies among the Rangers faithful worried that John Tortorella was banking too heavily on a couple of rookie defensemen.

I calmed some of the Blueshirts brigade with this advice: Matt Gilroy will win the Calder Trophy and Michael Del Zotto will be the second-half of New York's Gold Dust Twins on the blue line. I used a bit of historical perspective for my prediction, remembering a similar pair from yesteryear."

Fischler also says that the two rookies are reminiscent of the best Brian Leetch-Brad Park-style offensive-defense.

...now we have the 'Gold Dust Twins' to go along with our 'Albatross Twins.'
