I wouldn't want to give up on Zuc yet though. Let's see what he can do now that he's acclimated to the NA game.

The Rangers have been about 50-50 in the second round in getting top-6 guys, which is amazing considering that the rest of the league has been 20-80 in getting NHLers and maybe 10-90 in getting top-6 players.

But even if Clark keeps hitting 50%, I still say Zuccarello has higher odds of cracking the top-6 than a second rounder.

I would want #40+#100+#160 for Zuccarello. Otherwise, it's not worth it.
