An interesting article on whether or not the Jets should take on Zherdev (who apparently would like to play in Winnipeg):
Would it be that horrible if the Jets signed him? Could one young, aloof player do that much damage to a team surrounded by solid character people? Zherdev's got to know he is (or is very near) on his last leg in the NHL, so maybe that puts a burr under his saddle?
Zherdev doesn't seem like the type of player that the organization is targeting; however, the fact that he named Winnipeg as the place he'd like to sign says to me that maybe Cheveldayoff at least has a conversation with him. I just wonder if there's any real chance Chevy's at all interested. Probably not, but the team could certainly use a bit of depth up front, particularly on the right side.
