If you slow it down and go frame by frame you'll see a white screen with "WTF?" across it flash by for one frame.


Man, that like the exorcist. Scary *poo poo*.

Pretty awesome adjustment to get his stick on a hot pass.


He’s going to get paid this offseason. Great draft pick.


I’ll say 8 years at around $4.5MM - $5.5MM, and I think that would be a good deal for everyone.

He’ll be making more than Klingmann.

Klingberg, Lindell and Heiskanen all have more goals than PK Subban.

It's almost like having creative guys with immense hockey skills and hockey IQ is important to scoring.

Am sure Dobby appreciated the support for a nice change. Does seem like adding 1 more offensive threat better slots the rest of the players.

It's also pretty awesome to see the difference a grown-ass high-end NHL player adds. It cost a lot in a trade to add Zuccarello, but it transforms the team when he's out there.

His creativity on the PP also quickly tells me this isn't a PP coaching problem, despite what DBD wrote. This is a personnel problem. We've watched these guys pass it around to each other the same way for a long long time now, and here comes Zuccarello to show that you can actually skate around to create other opportunities beyond the Seguin one-timer.

Yes. People definitely looked more slotted In comfortable roles and our offense came alive.... in the whole 2 games he’s been here. Need someone like him long term.

Well... that's the thing... who knows if he'll sign long term. But it's okay. Hanzal will be healthy again next season!

All joking aside, for as much as I *poo poo* on Nill, it's obvious Nill recognized there was a talent problem even going back to last summer when he was chasing Tavares and Karlsson. He finally addressed it by adding Zuccarello.

And that’s the problem. I guess we needed to make the playoffs and maybe he did help in the 2 games he played but....

All the work the rest of the team did in those other 78 games played without Zuccarello will pay off too. They learned to be a better defensive team, which is how you win in the playoffs.

Unless you win with offense. Really dynamic offensive teams are almost always what ultimately wins in the end.

Stars are averaging 5 goals a game when Zuccarello plays.

They're also averaging 5 goals a game every game that he leaves early.

Zuc actually brings some creativity. It’s refreshing to see a player that hasn’t been beaten and broken into our Ultra-Hitchball system.

It's because we both embrace only the most advanced stats.

I knew it, never doubted them for a second. Always a believer since day one and you can't find a single post of me doubting them making the playoffs. Not one.

I'm still not fully convinced they will make it.
