lol...when I traveled with them back in April there was some 10 passengers wearing a Zuccarello jersey, also noticed a Lundqvist, a Nash and a Kreider one. Lots of Rangers fans over there.
To me the Dreamliner flight was a great experience. Cabin crew were Americans based in NY, pilots or at least the captain was a Norwegian, I had a chance to talk to him. Don't know how much they get paid, but I couldn't care less as long as they can take me over the pond for $200.
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.
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.
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.
