Rumors rise about Zherdev once again

With the start of another season rumors are once again on the rise about a potential trade involving the Blue Jackets Zherdev. Zherdev is a highly skilled youngster who has turned heads with his play and turned people off with contract disputes and inconsistent play.

What do you feel a player like Zherdev is worth to your favourite team and secondly would you want him on your favourite team?

    Did ZOLTAR Predict that?

    Three way trade:
    To New York – Fredrik Modin and 2nd Rounder (Dallas)
    To Columbus – Sean Avery and Mike Ribiero
    To Dallas – 1st Rounder (Columbus) and Marcel Hossa

    Columbus forms the Whine Line and makes it to the playoffs.

    Zherdez is cut from the same fabric as Yashin, no thanks! Ovenchkin is making a new name for the Russians, one with a better rep. Keep it up Alex!

  4. Rico71 says:

    Ship the lazy bum to Russia. He can be overpaid over there instead of wasting roster space on the poor BJs.

    He could team up with Ya$hin.


    The League doesn't need these overated lazy russian players.

  5. leniwm1 says:

    Its funny. Im a devil fan and hate the Sens, but wen Yashin was with them, i thought he was the greatest. but once money comes in, it changes everything…and i dont even get a dime! 

  6. eron says:

    So *****y and arrogant instead of… uh… *****y and arrogant?

  7. JannettyTheRocker says:

    I would definitely take Zherdev on my team. He's got a lot of potential, and would be a great fit for the Oil.

    Trade Proposal :

    To Columbus : Shawn Horcoff (C) and 3rd round pick

    To Edmonton : Nikolai Zherdev (RW)

    Edmonton's lines would look like this :

    Dustin Penner – Sam Gagner – Ales Hemsky

    Raffi Torres – Jarret Stoll – Nikolai Zherdev

    Ethan Moreau – Andrew Cogliano – Robert Nilsson

    Geoff Sanderson – Marty Reasoner – Pouliot/Brodziak

    This trade looks good from my point of view. Any thoughts?

  8. lookche says:

    haha, keep dreaming. NY would never give up Avery and Dallas would never give up Ribiero.

  9. KingCanada says:

    To Toronto : Zherdev
    To Colombus : Kulemin OR Tlusty/2nd rounder

    OR concidering Colombus has a lack of quality defencemen

    To Toronto : Zherdev/Federov
    To Colombus : Kubina/Gill/Ponikarovsky

    I dont like Federov but u gotta trade cap space for cap space

    Last but not least my UNREALISTIC leafs trade haha

    To Toronto : Zherdev/Novotny
    To Colombus : Harrison/Williams/Devereaux/Antropov/Colaiacovo

  10. mojo19 says:

    Jiri Novotny isn't great, I think he's one of those 25 year old "prospects" if you know what I mean. And I'd rather have Nik and CC than Zherdev I think Antropov will score more goals this year then Zherdev (again) despite missing more games.

  11. KingCanada says:

    yea i know, i wanted to say voracek or brule but that woulda been even TOO unrealistic for my tastes lol.  Antropov is too inconsistant and CC well hes a bandaid boy, sure he has potential but if hes always injured he cant really help us.  Antropov had his chance, its time to try someone else.

  12. PTack says:

    Haha that's awesome.

  13. kabby-4-kaptian says:

    Dude antropov has been one of the best leafs this pre-season, he can shoot, stickhandle, has great vision and is unbeatable along the boards with sundin. They are crazy along the boards together. this kid may actually have a great 60+ point season if he can stay healthy, i think the blake-sundin-antropov line is awesome!!


    Join this 14 team hockey pool, pick and nhl team and there is your roster, no annoying drafts that take hours and hours. after everyone has a team we then can sign free agents from the remaining 16 teams.

  14. lukeleim says:

    shawn horcoff for zherdev straight up.

  15. lukeleim says:

    Zherdev for andy wozniewski… zherdev has little to no market value right now

  16. eron says:

    I know, it would just be neat to see the WHINE LINE of Avery, Ribiero and Zherdev.  If not Zherdev, maybe Darcy Tucker so we could see a Triple Dive!

  17. KingCanada says:

    Sure he has value, hes got tons of potential, hes just being difficult thats why hes hard to move.  But Woznieski is SO EASILY replacable, nobody will trade someone like that for a plug.

    I put those players in becose i dont really like them and would like them to go away (Carlo i like but hes just injured too much)

  18. turdfergusson says:

      You would think Edmonton would get this done. Probably wanna wait a few games first I guess.
      I don't see Horcoff for Z. MAYBE BECAUSE HE'S THEIR FIRST LINE CENTER? 
      Maybe Zherdev for Schremp, Nilson and a pick or 2.  
      It doesen't look like the CBJ wanna pick up the tab on Horc. Would you?

  19. KingCanada says:

    Antropov has always been a streaky player, not to mention an injured one.  Since being picked 10th overall in 1998 hes NEVER lived up to his potential, his career best is 45 points.  You will see, even if he starts hot hell fizzle out as usual.  Better trade him while he has value if u ask me.

  20. eron says:

    Zherdev is, at best, a 22 year old who has scored 25+ goals once in his career.  I don't know if it was the right linemate or not, but I bet you put him on a team with a feeding centre and he'll score 30 easily.

    Since Boston is missing out on an underachiving winger ever since Sergei Samsonov left them, I say a realistic trade would be Zherdev to the Bruins for Chuck Kobasew.  Zherdev will either be playing with Kessel, who could keep up with him, or Savard, who could feed him pucks all day.  Even Kovalev could finish if you're getting it from Marc Savard.  There is also Patrice Bergeron, but I can't see the Nordique being a good choice for Zherdev.

    My other choice is Zherdev to Florida for some picks.  Florida can afford him and deal with his whining, he just won't be playing for a winner.  He's got a ton of centres to choose from, and while he could get on Olli's line, hes more suited for Nathan Horton.

  21. neilios says:

    Canucks need a RW I think Zherdev and Brule for Kesler and Edler and maybe a 3rd rounder.That would be a good trade for both teams the Jackets get a stud dman and Kesler with lots of scoring potential and the Nucks get some pretty decent scoring prospects.

  22. turdfergusson says:

       Keep dreaming.

  23. broc says:

    Congratulations, you're an idiot.

    Holy crap, you're talkin like Zherdev is actually good or something. He has no trade value at all right now.

    I wouldn't give EITHER Schremp or Nilson for him, let alone add a few picks on top. Your proposal makes it look like you're trading for Rick Nash.

    Oh well, you'd make a great Leafs GM at least.

  24. the_word says:

    Nonis address his teams most glaring need and picking up a capable forward?  Nah he's too busy concerning himself with who will be his 5th and 6th defenseman on the Nucks' farm team. 

  25. Jrugges says:

    To Columbus: Redwings 2nd and 5th rounders

    To Detroit: Zherdev.

    Sorry to tell most of you all but he doesn't have much trade value because EVERYONE knows he's a hassel in Col. Not to mention he's got a hafty contract around 2.1 mill or something an really thats all on potential then whats been actually shown.

    With that being said, Hell yah I'll take him on the wings. Team him up with Datsyuk on the first line and move homlstrom down to the second with Zetterberg at center. That'll be hard to match up defensively.

    Wings first line.



    I wouldn't give either line much more playing time than the other because I can't particularly decide on which one is more threatening. Also in PP or game breaking times in the game I would match the first like up with

    Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Zherdev just for the fact that these would prolly be the best scorers on the team along with play makers.

  26. turdfergusson says:


      Hypothetical scenario donkey.  However Scremp's gone. I would tell u why but I don't feel like it . As for Nilson?  He can go back to Sweden for all I care. He's shit.
    Granted Zherdev's a world class  flake but he's worth the gamble. What happens if this guy takes his man pill and decides to play Oiler hockey?

      I got an opening for the Marlies GM pos. You'd be perfect if you haven't been deported back to Jersey yet.
