As long as he's in that range, he's a huge asset.
Very often when talking about forwards the difference between 35 and 55 points is power play time and line mates.
As long as Zack can play in the top 9, compliment his line mates, and produce at an above average rate for the role he's in, he's a major asset given his size, toughness, and physicality.
As Gillis noted there are just so few guys with that upper end toughness who can also play a meaningful role for their team.
