Zherdev has something this team desperately needs, skill. Regardless of everything else, you can count on him for at least 55 points on a crappy team (ala 08-09), he'd get at the very least 60-65 on a decent team with decent linemates.
If we get the opportunity and he wants to sign here for a fair price, go for it. I don't know how that's going to work with Torts here but that's another convo.
I agree the rangers deperately need a playmaking winger who can play on the 2nd line and score goals. That sounds like Zherdev to me. He definately has his issue but he will solve one of the rangers biggest problems secondary scoring. I'd say sign him and put him on the 2nd line with Dubinsky who he already has chemistry with. Imagine having two lines that could put the puck in the net.
Rangers need to worry about making the playoffs first instead of performances in the playoffs.
