Zuccarello is still young and has room to improve. I'd rather the Rangers not pull a Calgary and just let a talented player walk for nothing.
Not nothing, a decent return.

Players developed from within have something to prove and play for the team. Guys coming in as FA's just want a paycheck. Zucca broke into the league with us and came back to us this year having improved in just about every facet of the game. Time to give the guy a real shot at finding his potential.
While that is true, I guess that looking at Stepan, Brassard, Hagelin, Nash and Callahan in the top-6 makes me yearn for a bigger presence in the way of physicality.

I like him but if you can get a bigger player of the same caliber I think you take the bigger player.

No knock on Zucc and I could be wrong just my opinion.
That's how I feel.

They need to key in on more young players who are being stifled. Is Rundblad that player? Not sure. He hasn't sold anyone on his defensive acumen.
