Is anyone else as excited as I am that the Philadelphia Flyers signed Nikolai Zherdez ? Obviously he’s not a big name, but you’re not gonna have a team full of all-stars anymore in the salary cap age. Look at Chicago ; they won the cpu and are having a firesale with all of their second tier talent. Meanwhile, the Flyers have added defensive depth, toughness, and now, more offense. Zherdev was a pretty good sniper for a few years on a horrible Columbus Blue Jackets team, and one season for the New York Rangers . He went to the KHL for a year,and now he’s back. fairly cheap too: 1 year for $2M.
