This ^ is generous.
Someone injury ravaged, looking for a body late in the season, hoping to catch lightning in a bottle might take a chance, but that's it.

Zuc is talented up to a point on offensive moves and dekes, etc., and is great if you are giving him penalty shots for your team (rare) and he is relatively mobile, but he is not NHL fast enough to generate the speed he needs to show off those moves. He gets shut down, and can't prevail vs. bigger, stronger faster NHL types.

I take what we can get, which I expect is nothing.
Use the contract spot otherwise next time.

Hang in there, (OP) JB, keep trying...
