With the turco situation. I honestly think that he is waiting for the flyers. I believe holmgren has told him, give me a little time until i clear some cap, and we will sign you. Homer just needs to get this deal done ASAP. There is only so much longer that turco is going to wait.

For the price and terms, this is a fantastic signing. Let's no kid ourselves, Ranger fans. Z for a few hundred grand more than Boogy is a damn steal. Z will score at a nice clip for the Flyers next year and just adds another pain in the ass to have to deal with when playing them 6 times.

Hopefully they get Turco. He stinks these days. LOL.

Again, quality signing here guys.

Zherdev is an immense signing for the price. I wish the term was 2 years, but everything else is solid.

Fans claiming it isn't probably wouldn't be crowing so hard if Z was wearing their colours next year.

As a Flyers fan, the new year is exciting me. We have the look of a real solid team, both offense and defence.

The last piece of the jigsaw is a recognised goaltender, because without that, and with Leighton/Boucher as the tandem, it is all worth squat

Put the last piece in Holmgren, I DARE you

Kiss a deep playoff run goodbye! One of the softest, most heartless hockey players I have seen. Yeah, he has skill, but he has no will...

Kinda seems like the anti-flyer type player. If it works Holmgrem looks smart if it doesn't he didn't risk too much.

He doesn't SEEM like a typical Flyer, but we needed some skill to replace whichever top-6 forward is gone.

Yeah why was he waived and then called up the next day? Were they about to make a deal or what? Seems pointless to waive a guy and then when he doesn't get claimed keep him on the team. Did Zherdev ask to be traded/waived?

apparently yes, Z's agent asked to be waived (he had been a healthy scratch for 6 games or something, and a number earlier in the season as well).

he was never assigned to adirondack, and therefore wasnt 'called up'.

When this thread got bumped, I got very surprised and confused. Then I figured out it was jump a necropost.

Terrible thread bump. Why not just use the zherdev waived thread?

The point of waiving was in hopes someone would take him off the payroll so they could add at the deadline. Philly didn't add anyone, so there is no need to remove him from the payroll.

Doubt it, you can just send the contract back since it's expiring.

Anyways the search bar isn't that good on HFboards. I just took the first zherdev thread I could find and bumped it.
