Even then, this series proved that we need a skilled shooter, a player who comes through in the clutch, and a player who raises hell on the forecheck. MZ is all of those things in 1.
If Mika ends up being a top 6 guy, and Hamilton a top 4, I'd rather have a top 4 defenceman. They to me are harder to find and also more important imo...

I'm not even sure Zibanejad will be a top 6 guy. Really, really early, but at this exact moment I am seeing a very good 3rd liner in Mika with the ability to move into the top 6.

And I expect the hate to rain...
