As long as Zherdev keep scoring and plays some D, he'll be great. He's always mixed it up a bit and will backcheck. I think Lavy will keep him on RW to avoid having him take the boards in the left wing lock, but other than that, I don't see any downside. Esp. if Bobrovsky is going to be around for a bit, it will help both of them to have a fellow Russian speaker around.
Hey, it may work...he wouldnt be the first to mature after several years. Lets hope so!!

Its just that we dont get all excited about seeing a player with 1 goal in 50 games making our team. I dont "hate" Nodl, but overhyping him just makes me dislike him even more
Who is overhyping him???

Which is why I didnt like having Meszaros at first, although I do like him as a player....Carle and Walker better be gone next year though.
