Give Zherdev what he wants

CBJBlue Jackets negotiations with Nikolai Zherdev have reportedly “hit a snag.”

This is not good. The CBJ has tons of talent, but we can’t afford to lose the depth that Zherdev brings to the table. It seems that all he wants is three or four years, and MacClean is hedging.

Just do it, Doug. Don’t tell me you forgot about this:

Not too many wingers can grab the puck and go coast to coast with 31 seconds left, zigging, zagging, deking opponents out of their skates, passing the puck to themselves in between defensemen’s legs, over their skates, and then flipping the puck in the net while horizontally airborne four feet above the ice – sending the game into OT where your team wins it. This is what Zherdev can do. Keep him here.
