It might miff you that Bickel landed himself a 2 year one way deal at $750K per but really that's not the kind of contract that sinks a team if it doesn't work out. Getting MZA's name on the dotted line would most probably have cost much more and the probability is that he would still be struggling to find a permanent place on the team. As for Kreider and Miller being worse options--whether or not Kreider has struggled all year long in both the AHL and NHL--last year's playoffs at least gives reason to believe that he's going to have a long and productive career and Miller's first few games has shown that even if he needs more fine tuning that he can hang at the NHL level (at 19 years old) without embarrassing himself.

The other thing that MZA created chance after chance is a bit of a rosy view of what exactly he did do--last year it meant 2 goals and 1 assist in 10 games.
What's about parenteau? What's the explanation for losing him? Torts doesn't give certain players a chance.. parenteau was discarded..not good enough for torts..and zuccarello is better...

I predict that zuccarello will eventually be back in the NHL and it will be an embarrassment for the rangers
