Zuccarello isn't an option for this team IMO. He simply is not strong or fast enough to be effective in this system as anything other than a PP specialist. I really like Zuccarello and think he could be successful in the right system, but on a team where defense is the first order of business, and offense comes in the form of counterattack and puck possession, he isn't going to add anything.

Where would he slide in? He's a top-6 or bust player. He isn't going to overtake any of Gaborik, Callahan, Hagelin, or Anisimov. And playing him in the bottom-6 would make not a lick of sense, even over a barely-NHLer John Mitchell, simply because he doesn't fit in such a situation.
