If we fix it now, we don't have to worry about it down the stretch.

Also, what is with all this love for Zherdev and what makes people think he will come and play for Pittsburgh?
I am hesitant on Whitney, too, but the fact is he might be the best option for us.

Zherdev is intriguing, as well. He might not ask for much, he'll be motivated to prove himself, and he could click with Malkin. I wouldn't be opposed to throwing him a one year deal at say, $2.5M just to see how he plays out. He might play well enough to parlay that into a longer deal, either here or elsewhere. Not saying he's at the top of my list, but the interest is there.
