Zherdev signs with Atlant of KHL (post 233)

The Post has learned that the agent for Nikolai Zherdev, who rejected the Rangers' $3.25 million qualifier and then became a free agent when the team walked away from his $3.9 million arbitration award, called the club this week offering to return for $3.25 million. The offer was refused.
Would you want Zherdev back for 3.25?

Not when I know he's come to begging for $3.25.

Maybe I'd offer him $2.25, if I thought he was humbled and really wanted to prove other teams wrong.

LOL

Sorry Z, but we've moved on. Only way I'd like him back is if it's less than 3.25M because we can't afford him anymore.

No. Dubinsky's agent knows no top 4 (centers) should look like Drury, Anisimov, Boyle, Arnason. Even with Dubi, our centers are weak. Without him, we are an AHL team in that category.

However, if we add in Zherdev (along w/ Dubi) Prospal,Dubi,Gaborik,Zherdev,Kotalik,Drury,Anisimo v,Avery,Cally,Lisin is a decent top 9 (With one extra when somebody slumps.etc)

Wow, turns out he and his agent could not land a deal in Hotlanta for their asking price either. Zherdev is a talented guy but this shows he is a mercenary for hire, after his drop off in the playoffs he should've accepted the qualifying offer and played this season on a line with Gaborik. Maybe that would've boosted his stats and he could maybe get the 4 or 5 million per next season he was seeking. Now its training camp and the Rangers and most teams do not have the July 1 cap space. If Z decides to come back and prove himself for 2.5 million or less, we have to jump on it. But at 3.25, that eliminates any chance of signing Dubi who's agent is pulling something very similar to Zherdev's agent, although not as big a scale. Imagine signing Dubi and Z for 3.25 total, we would be a much better team then most expected by the start of the season. Even the Zherdev haters would have to agree with that.

I'd do it. Let's not act like he's the first or last guy to pull some work over a contract.... its business, not personal.

He's worth another shot under Torts and sharing having a bit of a potentially better group of forwards this year, too.

People are being real dickish about this.

So, Dubinsky who hasn't proved anything in the NHL is still in good graces even though he refuses to take whatever managment is offering.

But Zherdev, who. Put up 60 points and 25+ goals is garbage because he wants a job and came to realize he was asking for too much?

You don't think its embarassing for him to do that? He learned the hard way.

But Dubinsky is innocent and evil managment won't give in to a player that has yet to reach any milestone in production.

Take Zherdev back. Our offensive depth would be very good.

What this summer has proven is that stubborness solves nothing.

I don't understand why no one would want him back? I mean he has the ability to score and 3.25 million isn't that much assuming we get it under the cap. He was our only player that could score last year and because of the we put too much pressure on him to do it. Personally I think he could have a great year with this years team. Am I the only one?

Stop being greedy and saying well if he's begging to come back and play for 3.25 mill then maybe he'll play for 2.5 mill.

Came out wrong , what i meant to say was "not all of you"

If sather is one things its definetly stubborn.If he rejected it already i don't think there's a chance at all that he'll reconsider unless zherdev comes back for BASEMENT cash.

We can't afford Zherdev at 3.25 mil. We can't afford him at 2.5 mil. There's really nothing to discuss unless he's willing to play for 1-1.5 mil, and even then, he'd be taking someone else's spot.

Zherdev misplayed his hand, overvalued himself, and now is hoping the Rangers will forgive him. Obviously the rest of the NHL feels the same way because he has no offers that come close to 3.25 mil. Oh well, if you gamble and lose, the casino does not give you your money back because you are desperate!

I think that Sather will offer him a 1-year 2.5m contract, and that will be the end of it.

lol, go read the last 3 pages of the Dubinsky thread. He is NOT in good graces. Go read the trade board. Dubinsky trade threads are popping up everywhere (by NYR fans).

I'd take Z back at 3.25M but we don't have the cap space for it. I don't know exactly how much space we have left but it doesn't matter. Slats already told him to piss off.

Hahahahahaha Fail on Zherdev's part. If he wants to come back it has to be for alot less than his QO which I highly doubt he will do. This is all his doing.

I thought I read somewhere that Zherdev is Roland Hedges' only client. Gives you a sense of how intelligent Z is.

Wait... the posters on this board are greedy?

I thought it was the guy who was given a modest raise after an average year where he was benched numerous times by multiple coaches and went 0-0-0 in the play-offs... refused that raise... went to arbitration... threatened to go to the KHL... and went looking to other teams to pay him the ridiculous arbitration award.
