Zucker has been everything I had hoped Setoguchi would be on the Wild...Fast, shoots everything, crashes the net and isn't shy of the physical game.

He's one of those tricky prospects that scores in college, scores at the AHL level but is a complete crapshoot to whether or not he can score in the NHL and will be seen. He could be anywhere from a Casey Wellman, to a Devin Setoguchi, to a Mike Camalleri..

If I had to predict I'd say he is a career top 9 player in the NHL with 5+ 20 goal seasons and 1 maybe 2 over 25 goals.

Coyle is beast and a lot of people think he would be on the Wild today if there was no lockout. I can't wait to see who ends up making the team out of the Coyle, Larsson, Zucker trio if this lockout ever neds..all 3 are some top notch NHL prospects and have impressed in the AHL this season in their own ways and will be huge parts of this teams future for the long haul.
