He's an extra weapon and in the PO grind you'll need every weapon you can get. I can easily see a few critical PO games where everyone else is exhausted, Z is fresh cuz he's been relegated to fourth line minutes, and as a result he is the difference-maker.
You do not win the playoffs because of being able to shake and bake, it is the attention to details and the ability to play all three zones which matter the most. Guys who score the big goals in the playoffs are the ones who go to the net and scrap for every puck. Look at the Caps, they want to rely on outscoring the opponent, which makes for a great regular season record, but when the games come down to grind they cannot play this style and thus do not have success.
