this isn't true as Zuccarello has some of the top possession numbers on the team and top for forwards. A key reason as to why the Rangers went 9-3-1 when Zuccarello arrived was because the Rangers were constantly outchancing teams while he was on the ice, and it wasn't even close. During that stretch, he was the team's best shot differential player on the ice that elevated the play of his linemates. He was tops in Rangers forwards in CorsiRelQOC, Relative Corsi by the end of the season. That is by definition, an impact player. He's always been a top tier puck possession player since stepping into the league.
