Have you not been watching the games? Did you throw your cable box out after the Sharks game? Zucarello is working harder than any of the other forwards on defense. He skates hardest back, he throws himself in front of the puck to block (albeit at one point pretty awkard looking). He might have a size disadvantage, but continuing with the "liability on the defense" bs that's been thrown around, you can stop. The stats and his play has proven otherwise, beyond a doubt.
When vague, subjective statements like "he skates hardest back" and "working harder than any of the other forwards" get thrown around like that, it makes it hard to take the argument seriously. Especially when saying Callahan and Stepan are bad at defense. Maybe you're right though, what do I know know. #Zucc4Selke2014
