Is he worth chasing?

Zherdev has elite offensive skills, especially one-on-one. He seems a lock for 60+ points, especially if given lots of ice time... but his defensive game is probably below average and his effort seems inconsistent. I wonder how he would do on the top line, facing the opponent's top defensive pairing night-in-night-out.

I'd be cautious throwing a big contract at him, but if he doesn't receive a lot of offers, you never know what he might be willing to agree to. I guess what I am saying is that it really depends on how much he is asking for.

this team can't afford to write anybody off with those offensive skills before talking to them and seeing what the cost will be.

The Coyotes need to improve offensively and defensively. Zherdev can help offensively and hurt defensively.

Still worth a look see IMHO.

I heard the Leafs were going to offer 4 mil a year, depending on term. He's not worth that IMO.

I could be wrong, but isn't he kind of a headcase?

Like Afinogenov and other Russians still looking for work, he will sign with a motherland team for more money than will be offered to him in the NHL. He's one dimensional and about as steady (character wise) as a drunk's feet aboard a ship in perfect storm seas.
Uh uh.

At this point I would take him but ya I think he will sign overseas. That's ok more jobs open for Canadian and American boys!

I agree with some of the other statements about Zherdev having a lot of talent and being able to translate that into points, but I really think the cost will be too high. I'm of the opinion that the Rangers arbitration offer wasn't that far off the mark and that $3.9 is too high. I'd be ok with a 1 or maybe 2 year deal at $3.5 per, but anything more than that and someone else can have him. I'd prefer to snag Tanguay or try to lure Kessel away from the Bruins.

That's exactly why it would have been folly to even bother talking to him.
Also, there are rumours about Zherdev talking to a Western Canadian team. Edmonchuk?

Bumpity-bump.

Should we take a look at Zherdev (PHI is shopping him especially after their recent moves)?

His contract is up at the end of this year (just over $537, 000 remaining), so he might be a good rental to give us that extra scoring punch going into the playoffs. Sure, DT would be pissed (due to Zherdev's defensive limitations), but he might be a good pick-up since Biz will be practically useless in the playoffs.

Of course, the issue would be at what cost? I'm thinking a prospect of some sort or perhaps a conditional pick.

Pass. mainly because of his defense. Gotta play both sides of the puck to play here.
