I think the 6 games at the end of the year allowed him to learn a lot going into the offseason. Also, he is a winger, which is easier to play than the center position, and has speed. His play has been just as dominant as Granlund's was in the AHL and he has been more consistent.

With all that said, I am not saying Zucker is a for sure thing or that Granlund is a bust. I am just saying that it is possible Zucker would not have the same growing pains that Granlund is experiencing.
