Zherdev to Vancouver???

Although not supported by any direct sources there is a great deal of speculation that the Vancouver Canucks are very interested in the Blue Jackets Nikolai Zherdev. It is well known that the Canucks are in need of extra scoring and Zherdev could provide to be a good fit with Morrison and Naslund provided that he cleans up his attitude and comes prepared to play.

The player that is most often talked about as trade bait in Vancouver is Mattais Ohlund. Ohlund is a very steady defenseman who works very hard and provides a great deal of leadership. While Zherdev is a great talent HTR does not believe that the Canucks would be interested in trading a top notch defenseman who does not ever complain for a sometimes interested but often whiny forward.
