Andrei Kostitsyn said he's willing to accept less money than his free agent market value if it means staying in Montreal.

WeThreeKings 01-20-2012 04:52 PM

Impossible. He's a lazy heartless russian who only cares about getting paid.

Jee 01-20-2012 04:52 PM

Wow, neat !!

Analyzer 01-20-2012 04:53 PM

I'd keep him for less. He's physical and skilled. What this team needs.

Andy 01-20-2012 04:53 PM

I hope he stays. Still one of my favorite players.

Crimson Skorpion 01-20-2012 04:54 PM

Wow! That's awesome, really wasn't expecting that at all.

Much better than Spacek's quote, also found on MA Godin's twitter; Jaroslav Spacek: "I'm very happy to be gone from that circus in Montreal."

Fish on The Sand 01-20-2012 04:54 PM

this is interesting. I would still like to trade him if we can get a first rounder in the middle of the round, but if his market value isn't that high this certainly makes it easier to keep him.

Tiger Svoboda 01-20-2012 04:54 PM

keep him here. 4 years/10 millions

ReVeuF 01-20-2012 04:54 PM

He want an extension before July 1st, not everyone like to move, if I was Gauthier I would offer him 2-3 more years at same salary or slightly better.

Boardish 01-20-2012 04:55 PM

It's funny that one of the first player in ages willing to take a ''pay cut'' to stay in Montreal is Kostitsyn, the lazy russian who doesn't give a **** about the city and is only here for the money.

Habsfan18 01-20-2012 04:55 PM

Sounds good to me.

That Habs Fan 01-20-2012 04:55 PM

if true, I love this, as I really, really want us to keep him around

He's right though, it's a freaking circus here.

yes, how dare he be happy to leave the city where he was constantly being **** on by the media and fans and where he was thought so lowly of by management Gauthier didn't even say goodbye after he traded him. I can't blame him one bit for being glad he is out after what the city put him through.

He'll be getting a very nasty call from his agent very very soon.

guest1467 01-20-2012 04:56 PM

Does not surprise me, he feels comfortable here.

Andrei is a good example of the type of player you want to keep. He is drafted and developed within the organization, and comes at good production per contract cost.

Player 61 01-20-2012 04:57 PM

Blah! I feel like I've got a dead fish on my line....

You are acting like the agent isn't employed by Andrei.

VAN-HAB 01-20-2012 04:57 PM

of course he doesn't care about money, Kosty family is worth lots of millions in Belarus. 3 millions is pocket money for him.

Myron Gaines* 01-20-2012 04:58 PM

Trade him.

PyrettaBlaze 01-20-2012 04:58 PM

Awesome. I really hope he stays!

I'll wait and see (remember Hamrlik?), but wow if true.

MTL-rules 01-20-2012 04:59 PM

A lot smarter than his brother...

I hope we'll get a good return for him at the deadline.

Bloumeister 01-20-2012 04:59 PM

Trade him to a contender before deadline, get a good pick or prospect in return, then sign him back this summer ;)
