It’s Sunday night and I’ve taken some time to step back and digest this trade. When news first broke yesterday it was weird to me. I had been reading up on the potential trade during the week but not even that prepared me for the pathetic trade. The Rangers received two conditional draft picks: a second-rounder in 2019 and a third-round pick in 2020. We basically gave Zucc away for 2 nobodies and maybe in 2022 I’ll look back at this and laugh (I hope).
Zucc spent 9 years with a now struggling Rangers team but he was there through all of our playoff runs and was a staple of the team. Social media was flooded with reactions and memories of his run with the team. Let’s take a look at some of his best moments as a Ranger.
If that montage doesn’t bring a tear to your eye than maybe Henrik Lundqvist will.
Zucc, played his first game as a Star this afternoon and was able to net a goal and an assist.
Not too long after Zucc blocked a shot and it has led to him most likely having to miss atleast 4 weeks.
I pray for a speedy recovery for the hobbit and hope that he gets to throw on a rangers sweater one last time before he retires. Thank you for the great memories Zucc. I wish you nothing but the best as you move forward and as always, Bleed Blue.
