The Rangers should give him another chance definatley, he is very skilled, but not for that price. I think anything under $4M would be fair if he plays with 100% effort every game. Zherdev is believed to have gained more skill during the off season.

Zherdev's Abritration Hearing
Is going on right now - he is participating through a telephone call from Russia. After the hearing the judge has 48 hours to make a decision, and the Rangers have 48 hours following that to either accept or allow him to become a free agent. Rumors are saying he is looking for around $4.5M
