I think Ryane Clowe can turn out to be a great linemate for Zucc if Torts let the line stick together. He can make up for some of the pure lack of size with Zucc. Richards also looked really good last night. If Clowe is a guy who can finish the puck, and Richards (two assists last night) gets going again, that line can become lethal.
Agreed. Clowe is the epitome of what a guy like Zucc needs on his line. They really complement each other if both are playing their games, and it also helps that Clowe is a multi-dimensional player who can also create plays so Zucc isn't the only playmaking threat from the wing. If Richie is going you have tons of dimensions on that line- tons of playmaking, lots of scoring, an awesome physical presence on one side with two guys next to him who will absolutely flourish with the extra space.

Hope we see that line for a while.
