But it definitely wasn't a talent issue. Are you arguing that he's not talented?

EDIT: Because I'm not considering the whole deal with the contract, since we're assuming that it's either Kotalik or Zherdev at 3Y/9M. If it's Kotalik at $3M per or Zherdev at $3M per, for three seasons, I'd take Zherdev. I think he'd give us equal or better production, with the chance (a shrinking chance) that he puts it all together and goes 30-60-90 or something crazy.
on what planet would zherdev assert effort long enough to pile up those kinds of numbers? certainly not this one. he's a diva, let him snpa his fingers in a Z formation (pun intended) all season long in the KHL, his reputation finally ruined him here.
