I agree with this. I've seen this team be bitten by injuries in the playoffs too often. We've got all this depth now to deal with that so we may as well keep him around unless a trade involving another player who could help us immediately comes up.

Zherdev's problem, aside from the fact that he would try to dangle through a minefield if you let him, is that he stops moving his damn feet when he's doing it.

How long till Z no longer wants to be a Flyer. He doesn't seem to be the kind to accept fourth line duty for long

Except he's not as talented as Kovalchuk, and didn't spend nearly a decade in a system that said "Do it yourself because we can't if you don't."

Right now, the Devils can't if he doesn't. Granted, he isn't, but I don't knock him for trying at this point.

He's probably thinking, ****. I could've stayed in Atlanta for this ****.

It's true. And he promptly found his ass in the press box.

I never heard that he complained to Holmgren.

Yeah, if there's anything decent out there in return for Zherdev then I can't see him sticking here. Even if we can't get a decent return I'm not sure if he'll stick here.

Zherdev to Nashville for a 3rd at the deadline?

Or got any other place that would involve him to have top 9 time?

Doubt it, but maybe. He's only signed through this year, Toronto needs the picks they haven't traded away since they're rebuilding for the future, and Zherdev isn't remotely close to being Brian Burke type player.

That said their forwards suck, so they might be willing to send a 4th our way...but what the hell good is that gonna do us, really?

I can't imagine Burke wanting any part of Zherdev in Toronto. Not only that but people here are freaking out at how he tosses away draft picks.

I think it was around the time Homer told him he had to talk to the media.

Something interesting that I heard on CTV Sportsnet's Hockey Central broadcast tonight.

If John MacLean gets fired in New Jersey, the name that keeps popping up as the next head coach in Jersey is Ken Hitchcock......

I can't tell if you're a girl, or being sarcastic. Help me out with this.
