Zherddev flyers) and hope he works his way up, you need to put him on top 2 lines with someone who understands his hockey sense and can accept his passes, read his plays etc...
Its like a synergy Ie. Kovalev is worth 2 Kostitsyn is worth 2 put them together and you get 5.... Put Kovy with Bissonette who is worth 1 and some how their sum is -1. I'm not sure the term for the opposite of synergy (possibly "bargain purchase" the accounting term for negative goodwill lol)?

Anyways, AK 47 and AK27 had good chemistry back in the day, hopefully the panthers add both, then throw a guy like wiess out there with them. That would be one sick dangle party!
To be fair, Zherdev scored a lot of goals for 4th line duty
