There wasn't a player available this off-season that has as much skill as Zherdev and would come anywhere near as cheaply as he likely will.
I know his history of laziness is a concern, but here are my reasons for optimism in that regard:
- Could perhaps be his last chance in the NHL
- Should really enjoy and thrive under Laviolette's up-tempo, aggressive system
- Will be on a team with another of veteran, extremely high character forwards (Pronger, Laperriere, O'Donnell) who will not enable him to play lazy hockey
I would REALLY like to see what he could do with someone like Giroux.
Agree with every point there. I think they'll put him with Richards though.
I'm about to go make an NHL10 team with our new team and include Zherdev and Turco
