well, from what ive seen him say and the type of person he seems to be, I doubt that. He will stick it out, he is not one of those Russians that jets if he does not get his will. He will be fighting for a spot, just like he did this year.
If resigned (and i am certain he will be considering his QO), he will come out of camp with a spot again next season. Guy plays with passion and guts, he will not give up his dream

If i dont remember wrong, feds got a little banged up and zucc came in for him. he kept him out though, and if it wasnt for zucc's arm breaking he would still be in the line up

As for Zucc contributing to the team, I dont even think his PP skill were the most important. He was willing to stand in front of the goal and get beat up to screen the goalie, something NYR desperatly needs.
Both his goals this season was a result of that effort.

LOl,thats makes SOOOO much sense.Lets just double shift players,wear them ot and even put them at risk.Any common sense would tell you a full 4 lines is most effective.

I never argued with anyone.

Did I say that? I said we dont need another one/player with no P.O expierience is a must.Only one I would sit is Mitchell if MZA was going to play.The kid is cold,ineffective anyway,not ready to just jump into a series like that.You think he is going to really rejuvenate the PP that much,lol....your a funny kid.

MZA offers nothing.He will be back in eurpope before you know it,if not remain in the AHL.

Also by reading your posts you sound like a spoiled brat,when you dont hear what you want.That attitude will change with age and maturity.
HAHAHAHAHAHA
I needed a good laugh for Friday afternoon, thanks for providing it.

Maybe if you actually read any of this thread (which you clearly did not) I posted Mike Rupp only got 5:09 last game, If we played Zucc he could eat up that 5:09 on the powerplay and someone else could eat up THAT HUGE 5 minutes of even strength time. This team would be so outmatched from 2 players being double shifted for 5 minutes, you are so smart and wise!

I really enjoy this sentence, "I said we dont need another one/player with no P.O expierience is a must." Besides the grammar issues that would make any English teacher cringe, what does playoff experience matter if he is playing 5 minutes on the PP???? You are talking as if we are going to play him 1st line minutes, he is going to be inserted ONLY as a PP specialist. Maybe you have noticed the PP has not been too good lately. Here I will state it in a way you can easily understand: Rangers Powerplay bad! Help for Powerplay equals good!

I am glad I come off as a spoiled brat/young, you can think whatever you want but I am probably older than you and your ability to debate blows.

makes sense to me,lets do it!
Mike Rupp got 5:09 last game and made a major impact! Let me tell you, every shift he got not a single Cap thought about fighting for even a second! He is keeping the game clean! I may just dress Scott over Kreider for game 7 to make sure the Caps don't goon it up.

Seriously Rupp has done 1 thing since the winter classic, 1 thing: he beat the crap out of Kopecky for his cheap shot on Del Zotto. If you think he provides anything ON THE ICE you are wrong. He may not be 100% (most likely) but he does not look like the player we signed from the Pens.

If Torts plans to use him on the PP to screen Holtby I am all for it, if not I'd rather see if Zucc could help our PP as opposed to having Rupp play for 5 minutes at even strength. I know this won't happen, but that is what I would try. Hope Rupp scores a huge goal and makes me eat crow, I would own it, but he will not.

Steve Zipay tweets that all of the healthy Rangers are on the ice today at the Verizon Center and that includes the Mats Zuccarello, even though Zucc has been ruled out for this series.

Andrew Gross@AGrossRecord
Mats Zuccarello update: He says timetable on injury was 6-8 weeks. He's at six weeks now but he says he's not ready yet.
Still don't get the title of the thread, it's okay I will explain it again for you. The question is would YOU dress Zucc for game 7. Some people here would, some would not... It is pretty safe to say I know which side you fall into. I think we all know what Torts will do, but the question posed was what would you do, not what would Torts do.

I am not too concerned what beat writers report because in the playoffs we do not always get the truth. Could we agree on that? Is it not possible Zucc says he is not close and could actually be pretty close?

Today Gross stated Zucc was in a non-contact jersey, which I find interesting because the day I opened this thread he was practicing in a blue practice jersey same as Prust and Prust even bumped him.

I get that you believe we will not see him play, I am not being outlandish saying Torts should be fired for this decision. Our PP is costing us this series, if I was the coach I would consider something to spark it, I would be desperate.

We have a coach who cannot make an in-game adjustment to save his life. They had what no shots on their first 3 PP's last game. UNACCEPTABLE in the playoffs, unless the coach is Torts. Maybe you would change the lines? Maybe you would play Hagelin or Kreider on the PP? Maybe park Rupp in front of the net. Here is an idea, put Stralman on the point with Staal to start the PP and get MDZ out of there. Nope not Torts, too stubborn. He is like an ape taking a diagnostic test trying to shove a square into a spot that would only fit a circle, he doesn't get it and won't give up.

Rupp is a pretty clutch veteran who has been there before. Big games don't phase him at all, as we saw in the winter classic, as he's had in the cup runs he's been a part of.
I know he hasn't had a huge impact yet, but he has had some good chances and despite a lack of ice time, I don't think he's had a negative impact to say the least. The Rupp-Mitchell-Prust line has been fine. We already have options on the powerplay that Torts is inexplicably going against instead of Mitchell. He's been moving Stepan all over the place, he's been hesitant to use Kreider. It's literally the only move he's making that I disagree with.

The guys to see powerplay time should be easy: Gaborik, Richards, Callahan, Hagelin, Anisimov, Stepan, Del Zotto, Stralman. There are 8 guys there. If these guys get too tired for the full two minutes, cycle in Boyle and Kreider to the mix, both have had strong playoffs in terms of offense. Richards or Boyle take basically every faceoff unless you're confident Mitchell can win it (he did have the assist on the Staal gamewinner).

And really, for a game 7, even if Zucc was healthy, I absolutely go with Rupp. The refs are going to put their whistles away. Zucc probably has a minimal impact in 5 on 5 play, while at least Rupp can go out and have a good shift against the 2nd or 3rd line of Washington (we have the matchup advantage at home) and cycle the puck well.

that's something i don't get about this team. they're willing to throw their bodies in front of a chara slapshot, but they're afraid to stand in front of the net? maybe it's a respect thing... idk... it just doesn't make sense.

Zuccarello may as well change his name to Jesus Christ because no matter what happens people consider him the savior.

I also think that zuke would be great in the khl (bigger ice, more space and lots of money. Thats good for him ) Im just worried that zuke wastes his best years in the ahl. He is a GREAT player and probably the best norwegian forward ever. Imo zuke is one of the best players in the world on big ice. He got more time to do those smart plays + his size isnt a problem. Thats just my opinion

And yeah beer and booze are my two best friends
Oilers are realy stacked with young talented forwards,and Linus Omark and Magnus Paajervi has a hard time craking the roster.
Don`t think Zucc will have a chance there.

He might go to Switzerland,where the money is bigger than the SEL

Patric Thoresen got around a million dollars a year i NLA. Zucc could get the same or even moore.
