Im fine with the callups, especially Hagelin who possess the ability to play on the bottom 6 and the speed that this team lacks.

In regards to Zuccarello, he is a flawed player - plain and simple. No size, poor speed, and little to no awareness away from the puck. When the only positives you can list about a player is their points per game or points per minute, it means they aren't playing many games or minutes - and theres usually 3 reasons for that.

1. they dont have the size/conditioning to play big-time NHL minutes.
2. their offensive creativity is offset by a total lack of awareness when it comes to other parts of the game.
3. In rare cases, its just the coach ****ing up

While a lot of people want to pin this on Torts, the harsh truth is its #'s 1 and 2 when it comes to Zuccarello
