Word today that Nikolai Zherdev has been awarded $3.9M after his arbitration hearing. It’s a one-year deal.
Would you trade Penner for him straight up? There are rumblings NYR will walk away from this award, meaning teams can sign him via free agency. However, Steve Tambellini has suggested the Oilers need to send out a contract in order to bring one in.
Is this a match?
