And they are, there's a lot about him in Norwegian papers and tv these days, and also the other Norwegians in the AHL/NHL.

But the Swedish papers make life harder for Zuccarello than it has to be when they're saying he wants to come back to Sweden because he's simply mishandled by the NYR. We all know that's not the truth. He showed he's an honest kid when he told the coaching staff that he wants to play in the AHL because he doesn't feel NHL ready. He did the right moves, and now it's just a question of time before he becomes a permanent player of the NYR.
