Time To Grow-Up

from the Columbus Dispatch,
Moments after the Blue Jackets signed Nikolai Zherdev to a threeyear, $7.5 million contract yesterday, president and general manager Doug MacLean stressed that a baby sitter will no longer be part of the deal. "We’re not going to have a fulltime baby sitter for him," MacLean said. "There’s a difference between getting him help and getting him a baby sitter. We’re willing to help the kid, of course. But we need Nikki to come in here ready to be a better teammate. That’s the bottom line."... MacLean said yesterday that Zherdev has promised to buy $125,000 worth of tickets during the next three seasons to be donated to charity. "Nikolai is a good, young kid," MacLean said. "He wants to do well and he wants to do the right thing."
