Shocker, still voting for Zucker.
Will not understand the Dumba fascination at this stage. Especially in comparison to the type of prospects left in this pool (Zucker, Larsson, and Bulmer would all get my vote before him). I get that many see and like the "potential." Truthfully, all I see in the "potential" to be the most disappointing player in all of the prospect pool. He's that far away and that raw.

The other kicker with Zucker is that if you compare his numbers to Parise they aren't even close (for NCAA). And they play a similar type of game, high end grinder with scoring ability.
His forgettable stint with a forgettable AHL team disguised as a NHL squad? I guess I wouldn't put much stock into Zucker's NHL games considering the jump he was making in-season and his injury.
As for the Parise comment, keep in mind that line Parise played on was one of the most prolific that NCAA has seen in a while. Bochenski never amount to much in the NHL but he was as pure of a collegiate scorer as there was at that time. When Murray came into the fold, well, there was plenty of points to be had.

SoH-"Who knows, that could have cost us a Cup tonight."
