If he can play well and keep himself in the lineup, then he shouldn't be worried. A contract isn't going to dictate that.
I honestly think the team is weighing their options between Zucc and another FA. My guess is Peter Mueller. Both players are probably looking for the same kind of term and money on their deal. Similar in age, and each has their pros and cons.
Zuccarello has already proven he fits on this club, though. I don't know, I don't see it that way. They had a chance on Mueller last year. I think they're just going in order. Waiting until Stepan and Hagelin have their deals done to see how much money they have to play with.
