Zherdev?

This one is at Beyond the Blueshirts, a Rangers blog.  It is crazy and interesting at the same time.  And if I were the Rangers, and death is not an option, I would sign Zherdev before I would extend Sather and Tortorella.

The article’s author, Igor Larin, fuels speculation by including the the following (unsourced) note after Nazarov’s comment: “According to some reports, the president of the Rangers is interested in Nikolai Zherdev from Atlant.”

That remark is likely to be met with mixed reactions by Rangers fans.  A year ago Zherdev was the co-leader in scoring in New York, but a late season scoring slump cast a pall over that accomplishment.  Once the season ended, the Rangers extended a $3.2 million qualifying offer to the restricted free agent, only to have Zherdev turn it down and take the team to arbitration.  When the arbitrator awarded the Ukranian-born winger a $3.9 million, one year deal, the club opted to walk away.

Get ready for the Filatov circus.
