To me it´s plain stupid to call up Zuccarello just to bench him, and wait for a shootout. It would have been better for him to play in Hartford with about 20 mins ice time, producing points and building confidence.
I choose to believe that Torts sees him as a replacement for Callahan, and gives him plenty of minutes. Let him altså play 4 on 4 in OT if it goes there.
Oh I agree, he shouldn't be called up just to play 6-7 mins and then be used in the shootout. If he's here, he should be getting at least 14-15 minutes a game.
