They both have great upside, but we know with Kreider that he should at least be able to play a bottom six role if his offense doesn't develop. If Zucca's offense doesn't translate to the NHL, then he's not going to be in the league.
Its the same with every offensive player though. Heatley, Ovechkin, Semin, Cammelerri, Roy, etc. None of them would be in the NHL if their offense didn't translate.

I like Kreider, but to me, if Zuccarello was drafted by the Rangers and had just dominated the SEL for over a season, just come over and was scoring like he is now in the AHL, he would be this teams #2. People seem to hold it against him that he wasn't drafted.
