Does Zhamnov have anything left? He appeared to put up pretty good numbers at the end of that last season, and he contributed in the playoffs.
I believe he does have something left but lets not forget how he vanished in the later playoff rounds. Also with another year passing, who knows. I rather go with Carter anyways. He can only go up in level of play.
Zhamnov on a reasonable short term contract would be well worth it. The thing is the Flyers defense leaves a lot to be desired, and I hope that's addressed first, after they bring back their RFA and sign Carter and Richards.
Great fit there, I think. Or Atlanta. A team with some young offensive superstars. Zhamnov has the playmaking ability and defensive awareness to let them really develop. He was beastly for us at the end of the season and early in the playoffs, but we can't keep everybody. It's amazing to think how good that Flyers team was going into the playoffs, before the injuries started to hit. We could have had 5 lines of legit NHL forwards, 8 defensemen, and 2-3 goalies.
