If Zherdev comes back to the NHL, we might get him for 3 million for one year. But after that he'll be a UFA (7 accrued seasons including the lockout) and will follow the money. And I don't think anyone here is ready to give him more than one year initially.
I'd rather have Whitney for that money because he's won a Cup and is a veteran whose wheels aren't about to fall off. He'll want a NTC and we should give him one. If he plays well, we won't trade him, and if he sucks no one will trade for his 35+ cap hit anyway. Then again, I don't want to give him more than 2 years.
