From Elliotte Friedman’s 30 Thoughts:
He and the Rangers are not close on a new deal and he can walk this summer. The simple move for New York is to keep him, make a playoff run and take their chances later. But, there are rumours they will consider trading him, see what they can get and, if necessary, flip that for something else.
I can’t prove or disprove those rumblings, but they’re out there.
It’s been pretty clear for a while now that the Rangers don’t value Zuccarello an amount appropriate for what he brings. The Rangers should be signing Zuccarello and fitting Marty St. Louis in with whatever’s left over, not the other way around.
