    So... few disappointing seasons. Basically the same stat line except a way better plus minus this past season which is a good sign i think. At 21 years old I can't help but feel like he could still find that elite game... Does NJ give him that chance still? Is he a flop? Does the dobber forum have a general consensus? Thanks!

    Yes he still has that chance. Unless moves happen this offseason he will be 2nd line center with some chances with hall at times. Stat lines aren't everything. He fell into the doghouse a few times this season but I would say the last 20 games give or take he really stepped up his game. Defensively he improved. Put himself out there more. Made so much smarter plays.

    I think he takes a small step forward this year and hopefully gets better more consistent linemates this year.

    Zacha was never projected as a guy that would step into the NHL and immediately be a star. He's a bigger guy that was going to be a bit of a project. He has so much natural skill, its just a question of if he can put it all together.

    We've seen small improvements here and there in parts of his game. I think its safe to say he'll be a 2C in the NHL. I'm still a believer that he can take that step to being a 1C but it might take a couple more years.

    He's also only 21. Still young enough to develop. I'm quite fond of Zacha and think he's going to be a pretty good player in the near future.

    Lots of youth going to be in that Top 6. Necas, Svechy will be injected too. As a keeper he has potential, but soon enough Carolina is going to have to pay for all their youth and I'm not sure they have the cap space. Their young defence is already so good that they are shopping around Hanafin (A young stud)

    I've never been high on Zacha.

    I saw him play when we was with Sarnia in the OHL and came away unimpressed. My buddy's son was playing against him the day I watched him and after the game we met another player from Sarnia who used to play with my buddy's son for a post game meal.

    I asked what was up with Zacha - he looked like he was not interested in being there and was going through the motions.

    The response I got was "He is lazy" and he wasn't really liked in the room. This has stuck with me ever since.
