Mats Zuccarello has seen two of his best friends get traded away during the last two summers.

Last year, the Rangers traded Carl Hagelin to Anaheim and this year, they shipped Derrick Brassard to Ottawa. "Don’t be friends with me," Zuccarello said. "Or else you might be traded. I know it’s the business, I understand that. Management is doing what they think is best for the team to make us better. But as a human being and a friend, I don’t appreciate it. I’ve lost my two best friends, and in that way I don’t think about hockey. Personally, I’m really sad to lose them." It'll be interesting to see how the loss of Brassard affects Zuccarello on the ice.
