In light of Russian hockey journalist Dmitry Chesnokov tweeting that "[Nikolay] Zherdev's Russian agent says the player is considering only NHL offers at this point," you have to think that either a) the player is mulling a series of offers or b) no team has put forth a serious offer to the player.

I noticed that capgeek.com (ever heard of it?) recently started letting users create & save their own rosters, thereby creating an entirely new source of thoughtful asset management mixed with the sheer lunacy that only a un-moderated message board could love.
Since relevant Canucks news is all but dried up at the moment, let's take a look at a sample of these user-generated rosters. Spoiler alert: It also helps to assume other GMs have completely lost their minds.

You may be shocked to learn this, but since the departure of bingofuel there has been very little in the way of adult supervision around Nation Central Command. The writers continue to write, the radio continues to radio and thankfully the advertisers continue to pay their bills.

Here's what Shirokov had to say.
Exclusive Q&A with Sergei Shirokov Via Andrey Osadchenko (translated from the original Russian).
Andrey Osadchenko: Though you didn’t dress for the Canucks in the playoffs this year, you were still with the team at the time. Would it be fair to say that it was the biggest event in your career so far?
Sergei Shirokov: In terms of gaining valuable experience, probably, yes, it was. I mean, it’s the Stanley Cup Finals. That was a big achievement for me experience-wise. Never in my life have I been a part of something as big as that. Although, I didn’t play a single game, I hung out with the team, experienced the atmosphere and saw everything that was going on at that time.
