Zucc is very good at getting pts on the board. He wasn't very effective at burying the puck for us in the NHL, but he is also pretty good. But his passing is of course spectacular at times.
Who knows how many pts he could score next to a Malkin or someone like that if he developed great chemistry with that center. I definitely don't think its a reach to speculate that he could get 80 pts even in a perfect year.
At the same time, whilst mentioning those type of numbers, we should also acknowledge his weakness. Because he is not great in many areas. He doesn't cover a ton of ice, and he is really weak when he is forced to go into physical battles. GM's would of course have thrown themselves after him if that wasn't the case.
But I definitely think he has potential to really hit it off to with the right center
Wich was exactely what he had in Modo playing with Niklas Sundström
and Per Åge Skroder
OT: By the way,what do you think Ola and dubkov21, could PÅS have made it in NA if he was a little younger?
