Bob McKenzie: The 2nd round pick becomes a 1st round pick if the Stars win two rounds. The 3rd round pick becomes a 1st if the Stars re-sign Zuccarello.

Bob McKenzie: The New York Rangers are retaining 30 percent of Zuccarello’s salary.

Thoughts from the media

Cap Friendly: “Based on the salary cap situation, NY retaining 30% of Zuccarello’s salary wasn’t enough to make the trade work.

We’ve confirmed that the have also placed Martin Hanzal on LTIR, which gave them an additional $4.75M to work with.”

Larry Brooks: “You can argue that Rangers should have extended Zuccarello rather than trade him for this return. Of course it would have taken both sides to agree to new deal. But it is foolish to suggest they were fleeced/hosed. Do you think they had better offers and rejected them?”

Ken Wiebe: “Really like this addition for who add a versatile winger who can play up and down the lineup, has experience, plays incredibly hard and can produce offensively as well”

James O’Brien: “The Dallas Stars do at least one thing EXTREMELY right under Jim Nill: big trades. I *love* this for Dallas.”
