Zharkov back to Albany

I feel like he wasn't really given a chance to succeed playing with Jansen and Mills. Would have been interesting to see him on a line with Henrique and Parise.

It's not really a big deal either way though.

If Zharkov maintains a career in the NHL, which I unfortunately doubt he will, he will be mostly a 4th line player. It's a shame that the Devils had to sign both Boulton and Janssen.
totally agree. i wonder if this is because boutlon is ready to come off IR or if they're going to call up taormina to rest larsson for a game or two.
edit - just read full TG post and of course, forgot about tedenby. it's amazing what happens when you get scratched for one game.

He was out there on the ice and thats really all he can ask for. I wish the best for the guy but we cant be wishing he would have got 1st line action

I mean, what exactly did Nick Palmeiri do that was so excellent that he earned time with Kovalchuk and then Parise. Surely it would have at least been interesting to see what Zharkov could do playing with skill guys at any point in his NHL career. At least for more than a couple shifts at a time.
Zharkov did get time with Kovalchuk in 09-10. But we know that Zharkov isn't a particularly skilled player. I like him a lot, but his scoring touch is poor. He's a perfect bottom 6 type player.
