But I fail to see why he's not supposedly good enough when he was 2nd in production in last year's PO's. As well as maintaining his avg. in the regular season matches. By all standards, that is good enough for the Rangers.
Wouldn't the natural thing be to look at the system to find the underlying fault for everyones shortcomings ? Instead of tooting the 'He has not talent' horn.
This is the same hockeyteam as last year, they didn't just magically get worse over the summer, something is causing it, and its not one short guy.
The only problem Zucc has compared to the other players on the team, are the missing points on the board. One multi-point game will fix this. Other than this, the whole team has been as awful as him. The only players that could be somewhat happy with their own performance are Richards and Callahan.
Players like Stepan and Brassard are expected to be top players. They have been totally invisible. Stepan have some points though, but no goals.
I am not defending Zucc, not at all, he has sucked big time, and is probably on his worst strech in his entire career.
Zucc is not this teams problem. The problem are the top players not getting it together. Lundqvist, Brassard, Stepan, Nash (sucked the games he played before he got injured)......
I do believe, however, that Zucc will ble waived shortly if he donīt produce. Thatīs how hockey works, especially NHL.
