I'm sorry but some people need to get over Zherdev, that ship has sailed, as has Prucha, Dawes.
Never mentioned Prucha, Dawes, myself.. however. On the subject of comparing the two, or even three players... we're not comparing them by on ice play. But by on ice results.
For virtually the same salary (Avery $4m, even though we're paying him $2, Kotalik at $3, and reportedly Zherdev at $3.25), the production we'd get out of Zherdev would far surpass both Avery and Kotalik.
