Zeiler is useless. He runs around skating really fast and then backs off of his checks. He is out of place more often than not due to his looking for that home run check and more often than not he misses (or worse backs off at the last second) and when he does connect he is known for taking a cheap shot or getting a penalty for his efforts.
He is useless when you consider that Clune can actually play a little and might even develop his game into being an NHL player. Zeiler is toast, he is of no value as an NHLer. A dime a dozen fourth line agitator who isn't even all that good at that aspect of his job.
I understand why you bring Zeiler up if your Terry Murray, its the same logic that you apply to bringing up King for the first line LW when your montra has been "you have to earn the right to play on the big club" and that is that he hasn't a clue about who should be playing where or with whom.
I didn't mind it when we were a floundering team of bits and pieces looking for direction, but we are well beyond that now and have almost all of he pieces in place to be an actual Cup contender and the wheel of fortune line decider or D match up pairing is bad enough but don't try and tell me that Zeiler is anywhere near the best we can do as a call up for checking line duty or that Peter Harrold is either.
This is and has been the most criticized part of Terry Murray as a coach and it appears that he hasn't learned from his past failings. He is the coach that comes in and puts a system in place and helps young players learn how to play in that system and with discipline and then he becomes useless. I am not putting all of this on TM's shoulders though, Morris is about as useless when it comes evaluating talent.
Look where these guys came from and look at their track records and you will see where I am basing my opinion. Unfortunately I see it as a case of the past repeating itself.
Zeiler is useless and easily not or next best option.
In my opinion.
