I never understood why his ice time was so limited. He has the skill, and he had chemistry with Giroux, Richards and Briere. He's a skilled player, with an unreached potential, imo. He needs to be given the opportunity to prove himself, and I dont think the FLyers ever really gave him that. THe only one thing bad I remember was about his attitude, when he wasn't around to play for a game, when he was with the club, and there was a last minute injury scratch. So, if there is a knock on him, of which I'm aware, it may be his personality as a team player, other than those areas of his game of which needed improvement, which all players have. Even still, some players need more time, patience and assistance (coaching) with their development. I never really felt like the FLyers gave Zherdev a real opportunity to thrive and develop his game, period.... <- period.
