Zuccarello has 4a in three games since being sent to the Whale.
...h/t to @brianring.
Been tweeting with CT Whale PR guy today who says while he's sure MZA is disappointed he sighs a lot while trying to find the correct words to say during interviews. Damn English language.
He will be back with the big club either this year or certainly next. I have him pegged a another Martin St. Louis.
Did he seem disinterested/restless/disappointed to you guys? I say this fully realizing that English is not his first language.
@KevinDeLury Maybe to help him Torts will send down that female Norwegian or Swedish reporter who was showing up at all the press conferences while Zucc was with the Rangers! That is probably one of the things I will miss about Zucc being up with the big club. Loved the look on Torts face when she was going to ask a question and he knew what was coming.
All the same, I really believe that Zucc will be an important piece for us down the road. I suspect that a combinaiton of things happened here:
(a) he was getting diminished time so best have him play with the Whale where he can get more minutes and learn more of the pro game;
(b) he started looking tired and lost during his last 2-3 weeks in New York;
(c) the remaining games as of last week were against hard hitting teams where we needed a bit more muscle.
On a different matter, see that Tim Kennedy is on re-entry waivers again with the Panthers.....think we knew what was going on here when we let him go.
