I have no problem admitting that Zuccarello was the reason I started following this team. But I stayed around when he was sent down and I stayed around when he went to Russia. And I think most of my fellow countrymen that dosen't have a love for the team has pretty much vanished from this board by now.

On topic; I have a real problem with using the term "defensive liability". To label someone as that, there has to be a real danger for a goal against by a mistake every time the puck is in the defensive zone. That is not the case with Zucc. He will never make an impact on the PK in the NHL, but he has made alot more good defensive plays than bad since he returned.
