Also, what's this talk of Torts not playing a guy like JAM on the third line? Hagelin and Zuccarello are two examples of undersized players being utilized in the bottom six. I just don't understand this movement to portray the Rangers or Torts for that matter as being against undersized players.
Hagelin is hardly undersized. He's not a huge guy but he's not small, either--just shy of six feet. He's also blazing fast and defensively responsible.

Zuccarello? He's pretty much the case-in-point example of example of Tortorella's disfavoring of one-dimensional, undersized forwards.
