MZA = Hlavac

Mike Humme at ESPN New York recaps E.J. Hradek's (ESPN) list of key prospects to watch for in camp including Mats Zuccarello Aasen...

New York Rangers: Mats Zuccarello Aasen

The undrafted 22-year-old (he turns 23 on Sept. 1) opened some NHL eyes with his play for Modo in the Swedish Elite League as well as his Olympic performance for an overmatched Team Norway. In fact, Zuccarello Aasen led the Swedish league with 64 points in 55 games. (Before you get too crazy about that, keep in mind former Ranger Jan Hlavac was the league's fifth-leading scorer as well as its top goal producer.)


...hey if MZA can play like Hlavac did with the Czech-mates (Nedved & Dvorak) I'd be pretty excited. 47 goals and 59 assists in two years from 1999-2001.

MZA FTW. Bet if Detroit had him on the team they'd give him a shot and he'd excel...

Yeah, he's like Hlavac... Or that guy who won the same mvp award in 2005...I wonder whatever happened to that guy?

lets hope he is at least more consistent.
