Question about Zherdev
 
I read recently that Columbus was trying to sign him and bring him over for this season.
Isn't it too late to bring over Europeans?
Or can Columbus pay his Russian team to get around the contract deadline?

He signed some time ago. And the transfer fee has been paid, but CSKA doesnt want him to come over, and since the CBJ have a number of other prospects on the CSKA team, they dont want to push the issue.

Tikhonov could still force Zherdev into the military...

He hasn't been playing well as of late and was demoted to the 4th line.Maybe he is doing this intentionally to be released from CSKA.

Could it just be that he needs to complete his military obligations? I vaguely remember that Svitov and Chistov had some military obligation issues. I think Mikko Koivu is not coming over for similar reasons. Both Russia and Finland have mandatory military service. In Russia you can fulfill it just playing for a military owned team. In Finland players can do community service over summer (or several summers?) to count towards military obligations.

I don't see how he can be put into the Russian army because he was born in Ukraine.
