As has been reported, Zucc is also hampered by injuries that he have to take care of this summer.

We still have no room on the roster for him. Our RW depth are Nash, Gabby (/LW) and Callahan. Who should he play with? Preferbly he is played with a very strong 2-way center, we don't got that.

OTOH, I think he got a helluva lot more potential than many give him credit for. Brunner is doing really well for Detroit, but he also gets to play in a really good environment.

Zucc could potentially definitely really help our PP.

That's a valid point for sure. Torts don't play players he don't like. The last time I checked, Torts has several times, three four atleast, gone with Zucc over several other half capable players (ok that might be discussed). But Zucc made this team out of camp last season for example, over Avery, Christensen and co. Over WW a couple of times. He made this team the year before that, and he made the team again late last season. Between that, what can you say, Hagelin and Mitchell -- when Zucc was hurt -- came in and played really well and the team just kept on winning. Zucc was out for a long time, and he wasn't brought up for a while after that.
According to the artical, Zucc's has an out after the 1st season and right now he team is tied 2-2 in the PO's.

His season could be over in 2-3 weeks.

Would love to have him back.

Would also love to see Torts fired. The players on the roster are not suited for Torts style.

Time to make a change and bring in some offence.

Later in the year as the article suggests, bring in both Fasth and Lindberg.

Increase the depth and speed of the team and hopefully we get someone in here that understands that goals HAVE to be scored to win games.

You don't win games 0-0 regardless of how impressive it is to limit the opposition to 0 goals.

From the article.

Zuccarello, whose NHL rights are owned by the Blueshirts, is completing the first year of a two-year deal he signed with the KHL team following last season. But the contract contains an NHL out-clause after one season, giving the winger an option agent Don Meehan told The Post his client would be willing to explore.
