I don't think most Jackets' fans are bitter. We've just completely removed the rose colored glasses and stopped drinking the Kool Aid.
Some might want Zherdev to fail just so they can say "I told you so." But I think most would like Zherdev to get his head out of his rear, apply himself, and have a successful career.
Zherdev is just a frustrating player for a fan (much like how Jagr probably was). All the talent in the world, you just wish it would be there more often.
Fritsche on the other hand is an extremely hard worker with good wheels and decent with other abilities. If you could somehow smush the two together (taking the good qualities of both) you would have one hell of a hockey player.
