Zherdev Awarded $3.9 Million

Update, 3:12 p.m.:
Zipay now confirms award.

Original Post:
Steve Zipay at Blue Notes reports a source has said that Nikolai Zherdev was awarded $3.9 million in arbitration.

Zipay, who is waiting for official confirmation, says if true, expect the Rangers to reject the award and the right winger will be an unrestricted free agent.

Andrew Gross at Ranger Rants adds that the Rangers could agree to the contract, then trade him to get value back.

...this was all very expected. It was nice knowing you Z.

So long Zerdev, great set up man skilled player - too moody and not a good fit for Torts' 'new look' Rangers

They should sign him and trade him. Even if they got just a draft pick for him, it's better than getting nothing.
