Zherdev is a great secret weapon to have though. You have to at least give Z a chance in the playoffs, and if he ****s up, swap him with Nodl or Powe.
Of course they are happy for that, it is overpayment for Glencross.


Zherdev is the great unknown because he can have a very good game if it is wide open, up and down, but when the games get tight checking and defense is a priority Zherdev is not a great fit.

They have scorers, get a guy who can play defense with Richards and Nodl, work hard every shift and be a bit of a PIA to play against and this team is set for the playoffs with JvR-Carter-Giroux as the next line behind HBL. Zherdev has one point in every playoff game he has played in, if he is not scoring what else does he bring. People have to stop thinking that you can outscore teams in the playoffs, IT IS about defense.
