While he may not been handled perfectly, it's not as if it's been awful...and he did choose to come back here.

The problem with Zuuc in the past was that while displaying talent and creativity, along with a great attitude, he was some what soft on the puck, not very good on his skates and not a good goal scorer.

He's been a much improved player since he came back. But those issues are still there to a degree. The guy has got to put the puck in the net...at least on a level with say Hags. If not he won't play here or anywhere else in the NHL.

I'm sure if he's not scoring and does not stick we will see lots of folks claiming he was treated/coached poorly.

I hope he goes out and scores a hatty tomorrow night. I really want this guy to succeed. He's an extremely likable fellow.
