Zuccarello is small, Kreider's defensive positioning is poor, and Stepan is a decent defensive center but is not a great one.
A big part of winning pucks in the NHL is strength, or reach. Now, its not the horror show that a Pouliot-Brassard-Zuccarello line was defensively, but as I have said that line is best suited as a 2nd group so they are not stuck up against the Crosby and Malkin type lines.
