I loved Zadorov in that game. Crushed two guys, one on the wall, one in open ice. Played on the PP and the PK. He makes beautiful stretch passes and is really just a player. Huge reach and knows how to use it.
I think I would pick him over Nurse at this point, let alone the others, but if Nurse is available, it'll be because New Jersey took Zadorov and let him slide.
