MZA Back Up This Year?

mzaUpdate, 3:18 p.m.:
Andrew Gross at Ranger Rants has more from Schoenfeld.

Original Post:
Jesse Spector at the Blueshirts Blog was able to speak with Assistant Coach Jim Schoenfeld about Ranger prospects including Matts Zuccarello, who he said has what it takes to get to the NHL this season…

“He’s as creative a player as there is in that league, for sure,” Schoenfeld said. “And more creative than many in this league.”

…I know anything can happen between now and the end of the year, but we’re having a tough time figuring out who is going to sit when Prospal comes back. Almost impossible task if MZA gets called up as well.

Last week John Tortorella said MZA wasn’t ready right now.
