I agree that Pouliot might be somewhat more versatile, if only because of his size.
We'll see if that "3 offensive lines" stuff comes to fruition when AV is confronted with these roster deficiencies.

But beyond that, I think the Zuccarello decision comes down to flexibility. Do the Rangers want that extra $1M+ in cap space in case something comes along?
