Hey guys Blues fan who wants to say "good game" but just can't cause the reffing tonight was atrocious for both sides. Hopefully when we play you guys up at MSG later in the year we get a better game. I hope you guys are able to turn it around this year always have had a soft spot for your Rangers.

Good night.

I actually agree with Daneyko for once - he said that the Rangers defense have to try to simplify their game before they start taking chances. It's obvious the new system is too overwhelming for the defense, they need to adapt slowly one step at a time.

Zucc has always been a guy who should have way more points than he does.

laughable absolutely laughable and for whatever reason this board seems to ignore it

I don't know why why some people are happy with giving up 5 goals.

frustratingly enough he isn't paired with shooters. there really aren't many on this team, really. it's irritating.

all those things are ignored for this kid for whatever reason

he's not the WORST guy on the team but he's close

way too small to slow to play against any real playoff type team

Because the team didn't play like it gave up 5 goals. The 2nd and 3rd were easy stops for anyone not named Biron, and the 4th is debatable. If Hank was playing, were in OT at the minimum right now, and quite possibly win. It's not that people are happy with 5 goals, but the matter in which they were scored in excuses the actual number somewhat.

This whole team looks overmatched. Not a very good argument.

At least zucca he forchecked, blocked shots and moved his legs. Right now we need to focus on defense, not on stats.

a little short?

he's 5' 4' if he's lucky and built like a highschool woman's badminton player

he's also useless defensively gets pinned on his side of the ice in his own zone constantly. DOESN"T SCORE

like other than being an adorable hobbit from norway there's no reason he should be loved here. prucha was better truth

zucc is one of the more physical players on the team. zuccarello is not that bad defensively if you bothered to watch him. zucc is making good plays just no one can finish. zucc is one of the faster players on this team.

He's better than Boyle in my book. Outside of faceoffs, Boyle brings nothing. He's a big guy, yet, he's a powderpuff.

Not a good argument? The team looking overmatched doesn't mean that it's acceptable on an individual basis. Too many excuses around here for certain players and the team in general.

Zucc has looked good in flashes, but he has to start putting up some points. Not going to last if he isn't scoring.

literally nothing you said there is even remotely close to being accurate

youre a fan i get it but let's be real here

if he's physical its like when your puppy is wrestling with your foot, losing, and you don't even realize it and look down and laugh

Yep, people need to realize that those who hold this opinion aren't doing so out of hate for him.
