The Pronger play came almost immediately off the confusion of a turnover.

The Zuccarello play was a standard rush where he had PLENTY of time to read the play. He apparently decided that getting to the trailer late and making a lazy stick check was the right course of action.

Why is there a need to inflate Zuccarello's offense prowess and gloss over real issues he has on the defensive end? Is it because hes small and easy to root for? Because seriously, Im just trying to evaluate a player without any bias here.
Cmon you get the reason for the use of this example of course each play is different and needs to be dissected on its own but thats the point they're making. People are using this one play to attack Zuke when his D play for his career has certainly not been that bad. people are pointing how ridiculous this is bty showing how any1 can be beat on any given play. The irony is that this post here is doing exactly what those you are argueing with are doing.
