Zuccarello at this point is a value player. Value players are crucial on any team but especially when you have several high cap-hitters on your team. The Rangers are lucky enough to have more than a few of those (Hagelin, Stepan, Zuccarello, McDonagh).

Zuccarello is the lowest paid player on your roster and has seemingly no problem in holding on to his roster spot. His performance has been really good sometimes and decent sometimes. This should be appreciated by all Rangers supporters.
very much agree with this, except... I truly believe him to be, if not a st louis, a much improved zucc in a couple of years - Someone who will make an impact every single game.. the guy has less than a full NHL-season under his belt, and is already a key player IMO. He shows long stints of brilliance, and his invisible flashes become more and more rare.

I think we have a player we will truly come to love in the years, especially if we hire a skill first head coach at some point.

Well, unless they screw up and send him back to the KHL.
