If the team viewed him as a legitimate scoring option for our top six, in the past or in the future, they'd have no problem whatsoever finding a spot for him. The problem is that the organization doesn't seem to feel that he's a capable regular at this point. And yes, his salary is too much for a spare forward.

If the team viewed him as a regular, his salary would make him a relative bargain.

Yup. And at least with Prucha, he had a terrific rookie season, so you could sort of understand why people remained high on him for so long. Zuccarello? He has shown flashes, but never any consistency. He's the classic small, skilled guy that's better suited for European hockey.


It's just pain.
