I'm fine with Brooks' view. Zherdev is a guy who has had problems distributing the puck in the past. He's been reported as being lazy at times. And on the second day of practice, he coughs up the puck at the blue line leading to a goal against. Perhaps many feel Brooks is being dramatic, but at the same time Sam basically called it an 'incident' - so Sam thought of that play as being worthy enough to point out. Brooks, who doesn't have a blog where he has something to say every 20 minutes, chose to point that out because it is news, as is how Renney chooses to deal with Zherdev and what style of play he wishes Zherdev to play. And Brooks points out another thing nobody points out - who on that line goes to retrieve the pucks in the corners, does battle along the boards and gets his nose dirty? So many screamed for a winger like that to ride shotgun with Jagr. Renney went to such lengths as to have Isbister play there. Thanks for pointing that out, Larry.
