Getting Klein back is a huge boost.
I don't think Zuccarello has enough size to bother Ovechkin. I met him in the city and he's my height (I'm short). That said, I love his game and he'd be helpful with other players. For Ovechkin, it's gonna take a team effort to stop him. He's so big and skilled that most players can't match him one on one, especially not a Forward.
Zukes is big for us on offense more then defense anyway. He's great with the puck but getting Klein back for our defense will help.
