Zuccarello does indeed make his linemates better, a lot better. But it isn't due to some weird intangible effect, it shows up all over his stats.

He has been by far the best possession player on the Rangers over the past three seasons. The Rangers have the most chances for with him on the ice, and they have the least chances against (Disregard Clowe and Ferriero as they put up almost all of their stats on a different team). Concurrently, he has the best +/- per minute over the same period. We have outscored our opposition 33-17 5v5 with Zuccarello on the ice.
