His lack of defense, his one-man showmanship, and his floating are just fuel to the fire that is the fact that he likes to overstay his shifts. Every time he does that, Laviolette blows a gasket and puts him on the 4th line. He wants to prove himself, that much is obvious. He just goes about proving himself the wrong way.
Part of me wants to see him succeed, but most of me doesn't really care all that much. It might be harsh, but I've learned to accept Zherdev as he is. He's helping us a bit in his own way. For now that's good enough. We don't need him to be the best thing since sliced bread for our team to be successful, and everyone here knew that when we signed him.
I hope he finds a good home at the end of this season far away from Pittsburgh or Washington, places where his style of hockey is rewarded.
At least he's better than Comrie or Guerin by a TON, and it's not even close. I'd rather have MacArthur, but MacArthur was the FA winger I wanted from the get go.
