My first instinct was the Zherdev would be a great fit with as a LW on Jagrs line. He would certainly give JJ someone to play with and would compliment JJ and Dubi really well. If JJ bolts Zherdev is a good option as a sniper. He is certainly a bit Kovalevish in with a bit of coasting in his game. But he is really really talented and just put up 61 pts on a bad team -- which is pretty solid. Playing with JJ might be what puts a player like Zherdev over the top. But thats just the feeling I got -- about playing with JJ, he could be a good fit with Gomez too.
And if JJ bolts I personally would match up Zherdev with Drury above Gomez, but thats just me. But I was really impressed by what Drury did with VANEK in Buffalo. CD pretty much earned thoose 49m for Vanek by pushing him on and off the ice; while providing him with allot of support and a finnishing option on the ice. Zherdev is also the type of player Drury needs inorder to really excell offensivly.
