Agree with you on the sentiment on Zherev:

I know there is no looking back - but
We could have been something like this on F instead:

Prospal - Dubi - Gaborik
Zherdev (accepted QO) - AA - Avery
Higgins - Drury - Cally
Byers - Boyle - Lisin

Orr (resigned)

Voros in the minors/traded
Kotalik never signed
Brash never signed

There is very little doubt that this team would have been a bit more lethal (5 on 5 at least) than the squad we now render. There would also have been around half a million extra in cap space left - eventually to be spent on the veteran bonecrushing, creaseclearing 7th D everybody is talking about.

Oh well - we got what we got. Forgot about that...
I agree 100%. A lot of people feel this way too. Easily a better team right there.

HOWEVER, how effective would our PP be without Kotalik?

-Mara should have been resigned (if he took the salary he got in MTL)
-Betts should have been resigned (if he took the salary he got in PHI)
-Boyle should be playing in Hartford for a year. I think he's only gonna get better and it a waste on the 4th line.
