Blue Jackets Nikolai Zherdev

The Blue Jackets say Nikolai Zherdev is in better condition and has a better mental approach than he's ever had. To take his makeover to another level, he's going to try a new position.
The 23-year-old Russian, a favourite whipping boy of former general manager Doug MacLean, will get a shot at centring a line between Rick Nash and David Vyborny when the Blue Jackets begin pre-season practice on Friday.
Well this will be interesting to see if he can take the pounding checks of the first line defensemen.

The Columbus Dispatch said he looked somewhere between lost and gone last evening. Seems like he is up to his old style
