Clearly some synergies between this airline and MSG
Zuke in the NHL is good for business.

Zucc is just incredible. Guy gets hit hard in his own zone doesn't even blink skates down to the other end of the rink and hits a Canadien defenseman. Doesn't stop!!! To me this guy turned around the teams season.

His best game in many games. Just pure awesome. Deserved a goal and points, but who cares today. He can sit back and be proud that he has been a huge part of this.

Here i is the headline in one of Norway┤s biggest papers this morning:

Yes. He's the perfect ambassadeur for the sport in Norway as well.

I doubted Zucc because of his size and was worried about the signing. The way hes played this season and in the playoffs (last night he was an absolute force) I want him to be a Ranger for life. The guy competes and shows up when it counts. Fantastic hockey player.

From the interview of Zuccarello by Norwegian media, his mother mentions it's apparent his son is mentally tougher than 2 years ago, that the adversity he's faced has made him stronger.

Zuke also mentions he plays better for AV, because AV is more forgiving when you make mistakes and give players the room to make things right again on their own, instead of punishing them. Zuke feels he has AV's trust, gets ice time and important minutes, can play the game to his strengths and doesn't have to be afraid that one mistake will put him in the dog house.

Probably one of his best performances all season. The fact that he didnt net a point matters nothing considering the outcome of the match, and ultimately the series.

Heres to a happy Stanley Cup series for the Norwegian hockey hero

OMG the guy was everywhere. He seemed determined to score. I liked seeing that. On that play where Brass couldn't lift the puck Zooks probably would have scored if Brass knew he was there and just left the puck alone. He is really starting to show some shifty moves along the offensive boards.

He seemed pretty uncomfortable the first year. Especially during interviews and in front of the media. I bet once the english started to "flow", he loosened up.

Zucc has never looked out of place during his time here. He has elevated his game every season. He flourished under AV obviously.

I don't want to see this magnificent SOB on another team.

Couldn't have written it better, oh big scriptor!

What a performance so far. Watched him some time before the Rangers signed him the first time. ALways thought he belongs to the NHL. An exceptional player, best Norwegian ainec and he is on our team!

Zucc and the third line has been really put up some great pressure in the series against MTL, but not many points. This means they will be due for the SCF

Thank you for stonewalling them, Tokarski.
