    Hmm, I think that’s a big loss! He had 54 points last season (27 goals and 27 assists) in 73 games!

  2. NiittymakiForVezina says:

    This is surprising. Tough loss if they can’t sign him, Zherdev’s only getting better.

    The Jackets really need to get this guy under contract. Not only is he a huge part of their future, but they are pretty thin on wing without him. He’s insanely skilled, and still has lots of upside, especially if he can put it all together on a consistent basis.

    true they would want a playmaker to make up for zherdev.

  8. J_Retz says:

    Abby? please God! Aebischer is horrendous and Souray is a sleeper on the ice. Ryder is a great player but it would take some of the habs’ prospects plus Ryder to get Zherdev.

  9. PensFansRejoice says:

    dont see them trading him regardless of the offer, too much talent and way too young to give up on. $-wise theyll get it done, just like Gagne in Philly and all the other young stud RFAs…

    Where’s Lint07? This is crazy bad news for your Jackets. Zherdev’s part of their future core

    i liked this guy too. If hes doing this to get a bigger contract id try and trade him now since hes becoming a headache player already!
