Losing Zherdev is not a big deal. The trade, in hindsight, was a loss. But it was a high risk/reward move. It lost. For those of you crying about losing 60 points, this team is more than 60 points from really contending, and even if Zherdev became the superstar some of you are suggesting, he was just ask for an even more absurd payday, which the rangers wouldn't be able to or willing to match. In his back pocket is a likely willingness to go the to KHL at any moment. This on top of the fact that he is a cancer on the ice. Yes he pops in a few and has scored a few big goals, but shift to shift, when he is not scoring, he is consistently putting the team in a bad position. If you are going to commit $4-6 million on a guy long term, you want him to do more than simply put up points. You want to win. Zherdev leaving will make this team better. He's a bum and a loser.
