I don't see how anyone can honestly claim Zuc is worth more than Hagelin at this point

I dont expect him to get more than Hagelin. But its a fair comparison. Alot of people in here think that Hagelins 2,25 mill 3 year contract is a steal but they dont think Zucc is worth more than 1.3 mill. Hagelin is a fast scater and a great forechecker. But remember what Torts said "he s*cked in PP". Remember Hagelin went 37 straight games in NHL without an assist or goal ?

Saether managed to get Zucc for a contract of 700.000 US$ annual short time this spring. If Saether likes Zucc that much its time he pays him decent salary (1.6-1.7 mill). Zucc said himself that he is not worth 2 mill US yet and that is far away from his demands.
