Time To Trade Mats Zuccarello

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

It is time for Jeff Gorton to do the right thing. Time for the general manager to do what’s best for his team and for Mats Zuccarello by moving the impending free agent as soon as he gets a legit trade offer and thus end the waiting game that is eating away at No. 36 and sure isn’t helping the Blueshirts.

“I’m a human being, so obviously it has been on my mind and I’ve allowed it to get into my head, probably too much,” Zuccarello told The Post following Sunday afternoon’s 5-0 rout by the Coyotes in which the Rangers put up no fight and Henrik Lundqvist was pulled for the second straight game. “When it affects my game the way it has been, that’s on me; I shouldn’t have let it get to that point.

“I mean, I’m a professional and have a responsibility to the team and my teammates. It’s been hard. I let it get to me. I need to let go of it and get back to being the Zukey everyone knows. I thought actually that it was a little bit better that way in this game for me, but obviously not close to being enough.”
