Posters here always accusing anyone who says anything bad about Zuccarello as being a "hater". Players get bashed all the time. Only when someone says something about Mats are they accused of "hating" him. Torts didn't want Zuccarello on the team because of the media from Norway. There was this one female reporter who annoyed John. All she cared about was Zuccarello. Why isn't Mats playing more? Why isn't Mats dressed? It didn't matter what the team did when Mats was here. Its all about Mats. Its the same thing with the Zuccarello guys from Norway.
Don't you think a coach not wanting a player for reasons other than his hockey ability is a little bit of a problem? Tortorella doesn't want Zucc because of the media, and yet somehow this makes the media the problem?

A player could potentially improve the team, but god forbid coach John have to get an extra question or two in the post game interviews. That would be unacceptable.
