Points aside, Zuccarello was an absolute beast in the tournament, and drove possession. A lot of take aways, and getting the puck out of the defensive sone, and setting up in the offensive one. If he'd have Thoresen centering him instead of Bastiansen, I believe his point total would be different too.

If you had seen the games, you'd notice that Zucc has actually been playing really well.

Norway has a relatively bad hockey team for the A series. You cant expect him to produce at any level when the team collectively isn't up to par with the big guns.

Canada is capable of beating Norway 10-0 on a good day, so that's where the strength difference is at.

Might have been a little to hard on him, but still I expect more from one of top wings in the NHL. But of course, Norway is not a very good hockey team. Still, other players on the team, like the Olimb brothers, have produced pretty decent.

That being said, I am just happy Zucc made it through the tournament without injury, that was my biggest fear.

Hockey is a team sport, and Olimb x 2 and R.Olsen are better players than Martinsen and Bastiansen.

And that isn't really a snub on Martinsen, he was great in the tournament - but he's a grinder and the kind of player you play to, not play with. Bastiansen has had a great career, and isn't a bad player, but he isn't exactly a young guy anymore. Hell, they even had Ask centering them for a while.

I guess being old is more harrowing than having your brain pulverised.

Its hard to argue that Jagr doesn't embody the heart and spirit of ice hockey.

But yes I'd love to have seen Zucc win it as well

So I guess Jagr is going to win the Masterton every year until he retires.

The bitter NY media is not going to vote for a current Ranger other than Lundy

Jagr deserved the Hart trophy in '05/'06. He was robbed. The league does not like giving any NY Ranger an award.

Watch those goals. Looks like he does not even put anything on the shots. Interesting, you will see he has a really really accurate shot when you see theese in a row

Jagr had an amazing NHL career though in consider his age and pts. in Florida last season - so I don`t mind that Jagr won it. I think Zuci will get another chance
at some awards later in his relative young NHL career.

I say young, because I`m 40, and I feel very young in my age.

I'm a Jagr fan but I feel Zooks deserved the award. He may have felt some NY backlash. Our media often does not support our guys like other cities media.

That video reminded me how good he has been so far as a Ranger. He undressed Bowmeister like few do nowadays.

I love the Ducks fans on the main boards that think Zucc would suck on Anaheim(because of his size, which has actually never really been a big issue for him), and wouldn't trade overrated Cam Fowler for him. They always say to actually watch Fowler, but they need to actually watch Zucc.

They can keep Fowler.

I think it is mainly 1 Ducks fan whose posts seem to indicate he has not watched Zooks play much.

literally the only player on the rangers id trade for Fowler is Dan Girardi.

Fowlers going to make a ton of money for a player that pretty much sucks.

In my humble opinion, Zook is the most underrated player in the entire NHL.
