That is why he is only good on PP where domination is predisposed.
Alex (I refuse to call him Ales) is a good signing, but he is no Zherdev replacement. Nick's replacement is Lisin and by now it is quite apparent that Sather has miscalculated the move. Letting Z go was an obvious mistake. Lisin is promising, but he will follow Zherdev's footsteps, i.e. he is a few years away from Z level. For that time Zherdev must have been kept.
So you're saying that the "dominant" player sets up the goals for the scorer who is just "productive"? Interesting theory. A dominant player DOMINATES and neither Zherdev nor Kotalik are dominant.
Zherdev is the more SKILLED player, the BETTER player is the one PRODUCING on the ice - not in NHL 10 on the Xbox 360. Kotalik is the BETTER player because he's producing actual results and not simply showing all this theoretical potential that is not quite realized on the ice (but is always realized in a video game which is based on skill ratings - there, and only there, is Zherdev "dominant").
