Get stronger and conditioned for the 82 game NHL schedual. All three of them were knocking our socks off till they hit their respective walls and even then the talent shined through the clouds of mental mistakes made from fatigue.
Zuccs will be fine, and will improve on last season for sure, although it may take 1-2 more seasons till we see his true form.
Well the only reason I brought that point up is in one of Torts' end of the year video's he discusses how Zucc might not be able to handle the rigors of the NHL game. I personally agree with you that he should get a 3rd line spot next season, and yes he needs conditioning and strength at a higher level.
