The polls are done for value of the player in general. Zuke has played in the NHL, has shown flashes of being able to be a player in the league but hasn't been able to find a spot on the roster. He was passed up by a guy like Hagelin because he can play 4 minutes a night or 15 minutes a night and be effective. Zuke needs to get ice time to have impact. Put Zuke on a team where he'll get top 6 ice time and he'll play like a NHL caliber player. His value around the league is high IMO, not as high as it was coming into the league though.

If the voting was done based solely on the Rangers than our positions where we lack prospects, would be our most valuable and should be the highest on the list. Does that make any sense? It doesn't. It's about putting guys on the list who are NHL players or have the potential to be so. Zuke is already a decent NHL player IMO, but he isn't playing with us because of the depth we already have. Zuke would be a top forward prospect in a lot of organizations.
