If Laviolette is trying to teach him -- fine, but Zherdev may just give up at some point.
Is he consistently out against the other teams best players? I'm not refuting that your stats are factually correct, but they're misleading.

I hope Zherdev doesn't quit on his coach or team mates. It's a lot tougher to stick it out in a situation like his if you aren't close to your team mates though. I wonder if he is tight with anyone on the team or has kind of kept to himself (which is more his M.O.).
