Zherdev Officially A Flyer

from Flyers.com,

The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that they have signed 6’2’’, 203-pound free agent right wing Nikolai Zherdev to a one-year contract, according to club General Manager Paul Holmgren. Per club policy, financial terms were not disclosed.

“Nik is a highly-skilled player who, at 25-years-old, we feel will be a good fit to our core of forwards,” said Holmgren.  “Prior to playing last season in Russia, Nik ranked as one of the top young point-producers in the NHL. We are pleased to add him to our team.”

Paul Holmgren should be the Flyers’ general manager for life. Anybody who adds aging defenseman (O’Donnell) and a goon (Shelley) while depending on the great goaltending tandem of Boucher and Leighton is a great general manager to me.

Why don’t you valet your high horse?  I do believe that Homer got within two victories of a Stanley Cup.  I don’t think you can criticize him all too much. 

Also, to note I do believe your infallible Pens signed an “aging” defenceman and a goon this summer as well, no?  We are all aging (unless you are from Orson, which may actually not be a stretch at all) and so are Martin and Michalek and Cooke is a definitely a goon…

Evilpens, how old are you?  It really is a shame you can afford internet service.

And I love how you are so quick to throw stones (wrongly as I pointed out) regarding my (correct) spelling, yet you have no concept of punctuation.

Rock on, mi amigo.  Score one for the western Pennsylvania public school system!
