    I also don't think Zucker is going to be a happy camper in Pittsburgh seeing as his wife and their 2 kids (plus her child from a previous relationship) will not be moving to Pittsburgh due to the shared custody of the eldest child.

    With all that said, Zucker has the ability to go on a heater for the rest of the year and score a ton of goals. When he's motivated, he can be a great scoring winger.
    Those numbers change pretty significantly if you look at 2016-2019. 5th in Corsi, 4th in Fenwick, 4th in SF%, 2nd in GF%, 4th in xGF%, 3rd in SCF%, 5th in HDCF%, 1st in HDGF%.

    Corsi he's behind Niederreiter, Pominville (78 games), Haula (72 games), and Staal
    Fenwick he's behind Pominville, Niederreiter, and Haula
    Shot share he's behind Pominville, Niederreiter, and Haula
    Goal share he's behind 52 games of Graovac
    Expected goal share he's behind Pominville, Granlund, and Haula
    Scoring chances he's behind Koivu and Granlund
    High Danger chances he's behind Granlund, Koivu, Haula, and Ennis

    Now maybe 45 games with an injury in there and all the trade uncertainty is the new normal for Zucker. It would be irresponsible to pretend it's not a possibility. I personally do not think it's the most likely outcome of performance for the rest of his contract, and as such would not think the trade is an overpayment. 3 years of performance prior to this year would indicate he's an upper end top 6 forward.

    Makes Bennings Miller trade look even better, Miller is younger with a slightly cheaper contract. Never thought I would say that Miller trade looked good.....
