As for me he's more than wellcome to play for Ukraine. I even don't want him to play for Russia, as he's got a bad rep, and questionable attitude.

In Ukraine he will be "the first kid in the village" and I think it's fits his personality.

It so happens in sports that some players even though are born somewhere else find a better niche for themselves in another country: Juran, Nikiforov, Tsymbalar', Karpin, Karyaka to name a few in Russia, Kaltivincev, Kormil'tsev, Aliev, to name a few in Ukraine.

As for Ukrainian hockey, it's been said before, many kids went to practice in Russia when Ukranian hockey disappeared from the face of the Earth. Since Russia made them into what they are now: Tverdovsky, Babchuk, Zherdev, Mihnov, But and many others opted to play for Russia.

They say, everyone has their own truth, but in the end, please have Zherdev

I think he won't play for either, but I don't understand why there's "unfortunately" in the poll...

because it would be unfortunate for us fans to not get to see him play, period.

Well, you can see him play in the NHL, right? I don't know about Ukraine, they are not in the OG anyway, but it's quite fortunate for Russia that a player who is not supposed to be making the team is actually not on the team...
