Zuccarello's been playing very well. I like that he's not taking a step back--he's playing a gritty game and he's making plays in the offensive end. The reason though that Pyatt and Asham are getting ice time is they're bigger bodies and apart from Erat all the Caps wingers are big strong guys. The Rangers wings are not so big or strong. This is about board battles and puck possession and grinding the other teams defense down which is typical of NHL playoffs. So Zuccarello is not going to get 20 minutes a game--10 to 15 minutes is plenty even if he's making more of an offensive contribution.
