Zherdev Set To Sign With KHL Team Today

If you follow KK on Twitter, you know the last few days I have posted a few items from Dmitry Chesnokov’s Twitter feed regading Zherdev signing with a KHL team.

Now Peter Adler at the Edmonton Journal reports…

According to an early August RDS.ca report, Zherdev was expected to sign with Salavat Yulayev Ufa, a team that also employs former NHL players such as Alexander Perezhogin and Alexander Radulov.

While Ufa is at the moment considered one of the richest, if not the richest, teams in the KHL, Zherdev went to Atlant, instead. According to team spokesman Gennadi Nabatov, Zherdev will be the best-paid player on the team.

How much would that be precisely? Or in the neighbourhood of what amount? Anywhere near the amount Zherdev wanted from the Rangers?

“None of your business, actually,” said Nabatov, obviously upset his statement had led to this line of questioning in the first place.
