Zherdev
 
Should the Oilers grab him now that he is on waivers ?

CorpseFX 02-23-2011 11:28 AM

id do it. who cares. have some fun.

Hall2Nuge2Ebs 02-23-2011 11:31 AM

He would be 3rd on our team in goals :amazed:

joestevens29 02-23-2011 11:31 AM

:laugh::laugh::laugh:

That was quick.

If Souray isn't on this roster then Zherdev isn't coming here either.

Well my hunch if they do grab him start waiving goodbye to Hemmer.

why? Zherdev only has a few games left in the NHL.
getting rid of Hemsky just because you pick up a dude on waivers for the final 20 games isnt sound "logic". it just means you have another headcase skilled hockey player in the mix with the rest of the turds on this team who can stickhandle through phone booths but cant play real hockey for any extended amount of time.

Neilio 02-23-2011 11:36 AM

Well we do need a new goat. I just hasn't been the same since POS left. We've tried running Hemsky and Gagner out of town, but something just isn't right. They just don't inspire enough rage. A skilled, lazy and moody Russian who doesn't want to be here would do the trick, I think.

OilerOlli* 02-23-2011 11:38 AM

He is an ufa at the end of the season. Makes no sense for us.

Halibut 02-23-2011 11:39 AM

It's an interesting thought but it would be hard to fit him on the roster, especially with Brule coming back. Heaven forbid we'd have to put Jacques through waivers:sarcasm:

He still is a asset that can score some goals I think even though his contract is up at the end of the season it might be a smart move , we could throw him in on a trade for a contending team in a package deal. I can not see any harm in grabbing him. H e will not clear so we should grab him we have first dibs

Matador 02-23-2011 11:40 AM

No, Renney didn't have many positive things to say last time about him IIRC. Peter Laviolette isn't a big fan either from what some Flyers fans are saying.

Wheatking 02-23-2011 11:41 AM

Penner, Hall and Paajarvi on the left side. Hemsky, Eberle and Omark on the right side. Where does he fit? We could send Omark down but he'd probably stay in Europe next season if we did that.

Zherdev is a 50-60 point cancer. Not worth the risk.

enthropi 02-23-2011 11:54 AM

Waiver buffet today!!! Claim them all!! nothing gets HF more uselessly excited than waiver fodder LOL.

jumptheshark 02-23-2011 11:59 AM

He is a LW

Hall, Penner and MPS

move him to Rw

Hemsky, Eberle and Omark


and please--don't go the lets move him to center debate

Harrison 02-23-2011 11:59 AM

Please NO.... No......No.....NO

MeestaDeteta 02-23-2011 12:00 PM

zero chance he gets picked up IMO.

Who do you take out of your top 9 for him? Really no room for the guy on this club.

Plus he has a bad attitude and that is something Tambo is staying away from.

Sorry, should have clarified - zero chance the Oilers pick him off of waivers. I do expect some teams will put in a claim though.

Perfect_Drug 02-23-2011 12:12 PM

I'd rather have Hagman over Zherdev.

:/

And I'm not very keen on Hagman.

Tad Mikowsky 02-23-2011 12:13 PM

Robert Nillson, except more afraid of corners, and is way lazier and has character issues.

Pass.

You are probably right . I dont think we could trade him if we picked him up anyhow I forgot about waiver rules . I could see the Kings grabbing him if he makes it that far.

Soundwave 02-23-2011 12:19 PM

They asked Renney about two years ago whether or not they should pursue him and Renney told the Oilers "no", so I doubt his opinion has changed from now and then (remember Renney coached Zherdev in NY).

Bryanbryoil 02-23-2011 12:26 PM

This could benefit a team like the Kings unless a bottom feeder claims him.

Maybe Columbus takes him and then brings Filatov back. :help:

I'm not serious about that ftr.
