While Nazarov did not identify the players, the interviewer did make some speculation...
“According to some reports, the president of the Rangers is interested in Nikolai Zherdev from Atlant.”
...i've seen a lot of comments from readers of this blog stating that letting Zherdev this past off-season go was a mistake and his offense has been sorely missed this season.
...maybe, but he showed down the stretch and in the playoffs that he melts once the hot lights of Broadway are on. I don't need anyone like that on the Rangers.
...i also wouldn't put too much stock into this report as Russia is notorious for their Eklund-like hockey rumors.
