New York Rangers trade rumors: Mats Zuccarello likely to be gone

Mats Zuccarello of the New York Rangers is rumored to be traded sometime within the next few days, as a result of the inability between general manager Glen Sather and Zuccarello to agree on the terms of a contract extension. The 5’7″ Zuccarello (12-23-35 in 58 games), with his fast skating ability and aggressive forecheck, is certainly a fan favorite for the amount of heart...
