i don't think the poster really meant it as a comparison of quality. He just sees him as the guy coming up from the minors, making an immediate impact and winning the hearts of most of the fans.
Even if Zuc did those things (and it's hard to make the argument he didn't, even if he did slow down), if we're going to compare Hags to any player brought up from the A last year, it should be McD. No one really expected him to be NHL ready, but he showed up and brought it.
MZA will never play for NYR again, while Hags will hopefully be around for years and years.
