Zucc/Hags is going to be an issue as well.

Hagelin is capable of playing anywhere in the top 3 lines, Zucc really is only a top 6 guy. But you put Zucc on the 2nd line with Brassard and you have a very undersized line with average skating. Any bigger physical team could cause a lot of trouble against that line.

Thats always going to be the issue with Zucc unless he really shows himself to be a top level player. If hes a borderline 2nd liner, the team will have trouble finding a spot to play him.

Really they need a 3rd line center and winger. Hagelin on the 3rd line could be an excellent fit, but he needs talent around him to capitalize on his forechecking
I would actually be fine with Zuccarello on the 3rd line. His linemates can make room for him, and while he's tiny, it takes guts to stare down Parros when you're 5'7" 180, or whatever MZA is now.
