Well Cogs and MP have both played more minutes (and games) than Zherdev and he still has more goals than both of them. In fact if you look at the goals scored at even strength per 60 minutes stat... Zherdev has scored 1.57 goals per 60 minutes played... no one on the Oilers is actually even close to that level this season.
