Forget Zherdev In Edmonton

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,

For any fans thinking that Nikolai Zherdev might be a fit with the Edmonton Oilers because the New York Rangers don’t want him, forget it.

He’s a square peg in a round hole.

While Zherdev might be intriguing on the wing because the Oilers have pulled out of the Dany Heatley trade with the Ottawa Senators, sources say Edmonton Oilers associate coach Tom Renney hasn’t enthusiastically gone to bat for the enigmatic Ukrainian-born forward.

Renney is a players’ coach, but his patience was stretched on Zherdev, a 24-year-old former first-round draft pick of the Columbus Blue Jackets, when Renney was the Rangers head coach.
