I don't see why Zuccarello is getting the boot when he was a top 3 forward down the stretch for the team. Size be damned, he can play the game of hockey at a high level. I don't care much for Kreider's size/speed if he doesn't do anything with the puck. I'd much rather see a slow skating smurf like Zuccarello if he can constantly create scoring chances.
Kreider-Lindberg-Miller, three rookie players are shaping up to be a disaster line. A big reason why the Rangers were so ineffective earlier in the season was because they were relying too much on Miller to fulfill the 3C, and he kept failing and failing. Relying on 3 rookies altogether in a line and provide secondary scoring production is a too much to ask for.
