Zherdev Deal Within 48 Hours

from the Columbus Dispatch,
The Blue Jackets appear close to reaching contract terms with restricted free agent Nikolai Zherdev. "We've had some good discussions," said Rolland Hedges, Zherdev's agent. "We're prepared to compromise. "If they are as well, I think we'll have a deal." NHL sources indicated a deal could be struck in the next 24 to 48 hours. "We've got real progress, which is good," MacLean said. "We have not agreed to terms. I wouldn't say we're close, necessarily, in a lot of respects. "But I would say the foundation is in place where we could get something done if we keep having productive talks."
more Many of you who have been following this know I have stated numerous times Zherdev would be back in Columbus by the start of the season. I have seen this same scenario too many times and 99.9% of them end just like this one will. update 11:52am, via WBNS-10TV,
10TV Sports has learned that the Columbus Blue Jackets have come to terms on a new contract with forward Nikolai Zherdev. The terms of the deal have not been disclosed. The Jackets will be holding a press conference at 12:30 p.m.
