here is your monthly update about our most beloved Shark of the Jersey shore (here at ILWT at least)
The most surprising is that he played only 44 games while the 2nd team leader in term of points, Joe Withney (31 pts), has played 8 more games than the Russian. Needless to say Zharkov's pt/game ratio is ahead anybody else in Albany (0.73 pt/G).
In my opinion, that would be now a perfect timing for Lou Lamoriello and Pete Deboer to reward (Pete Deboer seems to love to use this word) and so to call-up a young and energized (another gimmick) player which would make alongside Jacob Josefson and Ryan Carter the 4th line something more than just a liability.
Games start to really matter now, and with Janssen's buffonesque error directly leading to another goal against the 4th line yesterday, it would be nothing but normal that Lou and Pete agreed to stop that nonsense.
