The comparisons between the teenage Zherdev and Filatov start and end with sharing the same first name, being drafted in the first round by the CBJ's and being Russian. While it's all eerily similar that's all they have in common thus far into Nikita's life. For what it's worth, I'd take a shot with a 19 year old Nikolai Zherdev too if I had the opportunity five years ago.
