He doesn't fit at all in this roster's make-up. You don't want another, less talented, Kovalev.

Great skills, no heart... I pass.

No Zherdev please !

Enough of those lazy/talented players.

Let's give a chance to Eller,Maxpac & Pouliot on the top-six.

I see no point in getting Zherdev. He has to be option Z, and even then, I'm not sure I'd take that option.

I'd rather have David Desharnais in the Top-6 (if Eller plays 5 minutes a night there...) and sending either Eller or even Engqvist center one of the bottom lines than trading for Zherdev.

Gionta, AK, Patches, Pouliot. That's 4 wingers who can play on a Top-6.

Add Eller, Desharnais. That makes 6 guys who can play there.

And Cammy will eventually be back.

Do not want anymore enigmatic russians. I want more consistent players plz. I'll take Kovalev instead if we do indeed pick up an enigma.

So the Ottawa Sun (aka Bruce Garrioch?) is reporting that we are interested in the Flyer's Zherdev... and goes on to take a little shot at Gauthier.

Hey if he comes in cheap I wouldn't mind having Zherdev at all, personally...

http://www.ottawasun.com/sports/hock.../16994831.html
I mentioned last year that Gauthier should try to acquire Zherdev when he was a free agent, but many on this board just laughed at the suggestion of getting a "lazy Russian". Serves you and the whole Habs management right when Zherdev helps the Flyers win the Stanley cup.

Why would philly want to send us a goal scorer? I guess we could be "interested" but I doubt philly is.

Zherdev is 2 mill for one year, no reason for philly to help the habs get stronger.

off topic, genius ext by philly on Carter:

he had 4.500 5.000 5.500
but then since its an ext, he gets 6.000 6.250 6.500 6.750 7.000 7.000 6.500 5.000

but since its an ext, the low 3 first years are still counted and his cap hit per year is 5.273 (if nhlnumbers isn't wrong)

really great contract for a 40 goal scorer!

Rumor from the Ottawa Sun ?

Also, if the aforementionned rumor should happen to be true, they'd want to get rid of him, so I don't think they want his help that much.

BUT with JM at the helm, there is NO chance we'll ever get Zherdev, because he REALLY is lazy...

I would be surprised to see it happen (pleasantly though). Still, I don't think it would cost too much. Dealing Alfredsson makes perfect sense for Ottawa. He is at the end of his career, and with the current situation they will not be going anywhere with Alfreddson. I think he could be had for a 1st. Maybe a little more. And even if we are division rivals I don't see what difference that would make. Right now Ottawa is not competitive, and how much longer will he be around to haunt them.

I think it's more likely that a strong contender would look to add Alfredsson. Veteran presence for a cup run. Would work out nice for Alfredsson as well. I would love to see him get another shot at the cup.

Doubt they're too worried about us.

Worried? Probably not. But help another team that you might have to face in the playoffs would be silly. If Zherdev gets traded it will be a for a pick or 2.

I mean if Philly has a chance to improve their lineup I think they'd take the chance on dealing with a 'lesser' playoff team like the Habs (assuming we make it) if it means getting better than Pitt, for instance. Plus they seem to just manhandle us in the POs.

Even Eklund's stuff is far more likely to come true than anything the Ottawa Sun and Garrioch spit out, at least Eklund is entertaining.

There is no interest there, and it is Sather who thinks he can resurrect players careers, not PG.

Garriouch, he is less reliable than Eklund.

Actually, Eklund is Bruce Garrioch and JoJo Savard's love child.

Zhedev's better than AKost, he has far better IQ. He's been in Philly's doghouse all season, in a new system, replacing a legend player and is still 0.5ppg.

Why don't you listen to the finnish anthem some more?

For those that have sent me pm's, complaining about this thread.

Don't you have better things to do?

To answer all the questions though, the Ottawa Sun is a legit newspaper. So according to the stipulations here on HF, any rumour posted by them or one of their sports writers is deemed legit. This also goes for any other large newspaper.

So like it or not, this thread will stay open.

This is not to say that you should believe everything you read though. I'd still recommend using your common sense when reading these rumours.
