I watch the games. And Zucc doesn't look great in his own zone. He also doesn't PK. So if he's not scoring, he needs to be replaced with someone who can tangibly contribute in other facets of the game. By the way, he's getting plenty of opportunity to put points on the board. 2nd most ES TOI/Game among forwards on the team. And over 2 minutes of PP time per game.
The +/- matters. Stepan got lots of points and a terrible +/- stat because of stupid turnovers and sloppy play. Zuke on the other hand blocks shots and works hard all over the ice. Dont focus to much on point production.
