The hype Sean Couturier recieved for simply sticking in the NHL as an 18 and playing well defensively
The hype Chris Kreider recieved for simply sticking in the NHL playoffs and showing his size and speed

If we chose to keep Zibanejad in the NHL I believe he would have gotten similar hype.

Put him up the middle and his size, speed and defensive play would have garned rave reviews from the same Couturier fanboys who believe Selke > Art Ross.
Put him on the wing and watch him skate, blast pucks and throw his huge frame around in the playoffs ala newfound Calder trophy cantidate Chris Kreider.

No matter where we put him he'll be a great asset.
