Mats Zuccarello - a great game yesterday

Went to see Spartak vs. Magnitka yesterday. Mats #36 played brilliantly, even overshadowing Malkin on a few occasions.

Hope you have your flame suit near by..

Them boys are going to be all over you..

Seriously, let's bring his name up later - when he's got a few more games there..

So far he's been kind of just there, before this game his stats weren't all that and a bag of chips..

And yes, I love to see him play so I want him to come back next season..

Was a great move to retain his rights. Well, a no-brainer move really, but a great one none the less.

He can only play good since its a larger ice surface!....Oh its only 15 feet wider then an NHL rink?

He can only play good since the players are not as strong!....Oh they are? And its the 2nd best league in the league including a bunch of NHLers now?

He sure would be a great, cheap, offensive tool for the Rangers once that cap goes down.

I know people are joking here, but Zuccarello was very efficient down the stretch for the team with Boyle before he broke his wrists. He really had no business being sent down in the first place when plugs/goons like Rupp, Wolski and Deveaux were getting chances in the lineup.

Zuccs worked hard and made the team out of camp. After that he got complacent and played lazy, when the reality was he didn't have a spot locked up. He deserved a long demotion.

I will agree when he came up before he broke his wrist he was excellent out there. If he hadn't been injured and played that way for the playoffs we would have been a hell of a lot more dangerous.

i watched the first period of that game and realized how much more mgk dives now that malkin has been there awhile.

zucc always stands out when he's on the ice.

Though I like him a lot: How come a player that did'nt make it even when tucked away in Siberia still manages to get a new thread on this forum? Can't we let him rest for a while, until one day he comes back and makes it?

I'd gladly take Mza back, even if he is never more than a depth guy/pp specialist we could use the depth. But I think it makes far less sense for him to comeback from his standpoint than ours

He's still a part of the team, you realize that right?

I am aware the Rangers retain his rights, yes. Same thing with Ivan Baranka, is he still a part of the team, too? Don't get me wrong, nothing will make me more of a happy camper than having Mats back on Broadway. I just find it odd that he has more threads on this forum than most players that are actually locks on this team.

he didn't play lazy... he just played his style, which doesn't fit with the rangers and isn't very effective in the NHL.

fact is the guy played 52 NHL games and was ineffective in nearly all of them. his good games were celebrated by fans saying "see? we told you!" and his bad games were all ignored and avoided to talk about how talented he is. you can get away with a lack of size if you've got extraordinary talent. MZA has horrible and his talent is above average, but not nearly good enough to make up for what he lacks in size

Then he busted his ass on his 2nd callup and did a wonderful job.

Ineffective in all of them? His career PPG extrapolates to a 41 point pace over a full season. And this is while factoring in his lack of ice time.

All 40 point players who cant do anything else particularly well dont make it, and the latter part is why they dont get much ice time. Quite the easy cycle to understand if you dont have an attachment to a player

On pace for a 41 point rookie season with limited icetime and on a ****** 4th line...

yeah..."lazy as lazy can be"....please man...come on...you can do better...

I'm a fan of his and Norwegian so I'll fist pump for each and every one of them points, but I hope he stays healthy and strong towards juli/aug 13 so he can make a better impression in the training camp - if he's still on the radar....

In khl he has played 12 games so far and has 8 points (2+6) and 15:09 ice time whilst MAlkin has 15 games and 22 points (15+7) and 22:21 ice time...

So he's not setting the world on fire yet...

Hes not lazy. His game is lacking and he was largely overmatched at the NHL level.

Might be worse than being lazy, because sometimes you can fix that

i understand that we still retain his right but can we just let it go already. why don't we spend this time talking about players that want to be on the rangers. the rangers gave him a shot last year and looked to be prepared to really go with him and he got hurt missing a fairly substantial amount of games. which with our style and his body type would most likely be a regular thing with him. i root for the team before the player and he chose to go to russia rather than be a ranger so quite frankly id rather not see a new thread everytime he scores a goal

Zuccarello had 1+1 in todays game against Dynamo Minsk 7-2 victory

Justin Hodgman (Canada) made 4 point (2+2)

Good to see Zuccarello start producing again after injuries
