Please expand on your understanding of what Winnipeg's cultural and social shortcomings are.

Respectfully, please don't. Can we just talk about Zherdev and not have another thread for people to bash other cities?

I've travelled to Russia, and have taken the Trans-Siberian. Trust me, it's even colder than most inhabited cities in Canada. With the humidity in the air, it chills you straight to the bone, unlike the relatively dry climate in Central-Northern Canada.

If he's a hockey player, he's going to go to the place that offers him the best opportunity ON THE ICE and financially, not the most beaches or gridlock traffic. Zherdev alluded to this in his interview. Did you read it?

Edmonton's management and lack of success on the ice has been as much to blame for their inability to sign free agents as the weather has. It's a misconception. Players who base their decisions on climate aren't the type you want on your roster anyway.

That said, if both places offer the same in terms of hockey-related matters, I'd take the beach!

From the sounds of this article, I like Zherdev's attitude. He seems a lot more mature than in past years.

Don't screw this one up, Cheveldayoff.

I think a team like the Jets would be great for Zherdev. He would get plenty of ice time and get a chance to be the star of the team. I think its a great fit for him. Winnipeg should gamble because the need better offense to reach the playoffs.

Don't worry, it's a trap.

A poster who provides translations of Russian articles recently posted an interview where Zherdev comes off as a diva who still doesn't get that it's NOT all about him. He isn't a team player. Though for a cheap price, like...a million, I guess, he'd probably be good for Winnipeg.

Zherdev's KHL rights are held by Atlant. With Alexei Kovalev apparently signing with that same team, it may indicate Zherdev is a better bet to play in the NHL this coming season.

I'm continuously updating Zherdev's status here.

Hopefully he just floats his way back to the KHL.

even if he actually did play to his potential, he would not be a bigger star than kane, enstrom, byfuglien, little, ladd, burmistrov, or pavelec

but yeah, he could play on the 2nd line.

Rangers 2008-9 Zherdev was team's LEADING SCORER, then Rangers walked away from his arbitration award.
Atlant Moscow Oblast 2009-10
Flyers 2010-11 Flyers waive goes unclaimed, Flyers decline to offer.

He's a talented guy, when he wants to, he will play 200 feet. Somehow, he wears out his welcome very quickly, in less than a season. Even CSKA walked away from him after one season.

Good way to make the Jets dressing room measurably worse.

I hope he signs an NHL contract, but with a team I don't like and want him to sabotage.

He would be perfect for the Blues or Ducks!

The word for Z is cancer...you nailed it right on the head: Zherdevs cost isn't cap space, its locker-room morale.

Also, I think on the caps he COULD do alright, cuz maybe he would look up to ovie.

But even that's a stretch

I really hope Z goes big time in the NHL. So many people rag on him like they know him personally. Funny.

The potential is there for a big season in Winterpeg Manitsnowba. But it is just potential If Zherdev goes to winnipeg, which i hope he does, he needs to show some offense, and his abilites. There are a few other Russians on the roster as well, which also helps the situation.

The team as it is, is going to get a lottery pick. They ain't making the playoffs with or without him.

I hate Zherdev with a ****ing passion but if he played up to his POTENTIAL the guy would be talked about with Kovalchuk, Stamkos etc.

One of the most talented players to lace em up. Unfortunately also one of the laziest.

He'd be a good fit, since Noel is basically Renney 2.0 and Zherdev was lights out under Renney. However if I were them I wouldn't risk Zherdev negatively influencing Burmistrov, who I'm pretty sure will be the best player on that team in a couple years by a fair margin if his mindset doesn't get derailed. If there's any Russian Winnipeg should be going after I'd say it's Tikhonov (who chances are will get waived under Tippett). Kane-Burmistrov-Tikhonov could become a ridiculous counterattacking line.
