Sabres fan here, wondering how Zadorov's doing. We could really use him on our backend (though he'd probably suffer mightily in Bylsma's awful system ), but getting RoR was very much needed, as well. Hope the Avs can turn it around soon!

Been the bright spot on our team lately. Been his usual self and just abusing players and improving overall this year. Still makes a big mistake per game it seems, but he's developing as well as he can on a team like ours.

Zadorov is absolutely going to be my next Avs jersey to buy. I'll wait until next season though, see if our new jerseys are any good. If not I'll be getting our current 3rd as a Z one.

The brightest spot of this disastrous season.

Damn that highlight reel of hits is nice to see. He does have quite the size and reach, hoping he puts it all together for this team because he could be flat out dominant.

Really wish we had first half Beauchemin from last year as a safety blanket for Zads. He's made a lot of good strides defensively compared to last year, still makes that one massive mistake a game, but that's considerably better. If he can up his conditioning and keep working on that mental focus he'll be a top-pairing Dman sooner rather than later.

I love how clean 95% of Z's hits are too... A lot of guys his size have trouble avoiding hitting smaller guys in the head.

Yeah it's like he lost a bet, and now has to be the one to find a way to stir **** up. They must be running out of story lines.

You know what would be a good story line though? How well Zadorov is doing... lol.

Either that or Zadorov showed up to the rink this morning with a box of doughnuts, and didn't give one to Frei lol.

I don't fully remember, but something about how people may have said too soon that Zadorov is turning the corner at 21, obviously implying that he's not doing well.

Oh man. Even though Z's had some gaffes, he couldn't have picked a worse time to say that one.

Hopefully he got enough backlash for it.

Not that Zadorov is already a stud by any means, still a long way to go. But he absolutely has turned a corner in his play compared to the start of the season.

It also just makes no sense. He tweeted this yesterday, after not having nearly a week's worth of games when he said just last week that there were encouraging things from Z. If that's his opinion, whatever but I'm just saying logically it doesn't fit. If he thought a week ago he was doing some good things why did he decide yesterday that was premature?

A major #Avs question now is whether we were way premature in saying Zadorov was turning corner at 21.

When I looked at my post I could still see the text, so that's exactly what he said. Funny that he deleted it. Just proves how much of a moron he is considering he wasn't even remotely prepared to back it up.

Zadorov is my man crush. He's higher on my list than Morrissey, Crouse, Little and Radulov.
