Ideally we'd have both, though. We could still use another playmaker.
Well said.

I would like to have seen what Zherdev could do on this team. If he could put up the numbers he did on the offensive black hole that was last years team, I would like to see what he could do on a faster team where he is not the primary scoring threat.

Still, we don't know how him and Torts got along or how they would have this season. When Zherdev skated all-out he looked nearly unstoppable. The only problem was that he rarely if ever did. I doubt Torts would put up with that.

Hard to not like what Kotalik has brought.
