Andrei Kostitsyn Invited to Camp (Staying in Traktor)
 
RDS in English ‏@RDSinEnglish

#RDS The Florida Panthers have invited Andrei Kostitsyn and Marek Svatos to their training camp. https://twitter.com/GeorgeRichards


that is from GR's twitter. He retweeted it so must be true.


edited it since other link wasn't working.

No I cannot; RDS reports that “@Panthersfan9: GR, can you concretely confirm if Andrei Kostitsyn has been invited to camp? Seems iffy.”
So as it stands we have a report from RDS saying this is the case but that's about it.


UPDATE:
See post #57 for Kostitsyn saying himself he will remain with Traktor for entire 12/13 season.

the most likely to make it out of the three who have been invited

Just after I posted on the Kovalev-thread, I see this. Interesting invites to say the least. Interesting mini-camp.

RainingRats 01-08-2013 11:34 AM

I'd like to see him challenge Upshall for a top 6 spot

I May Be Wrong 01-08-2013 11:35 AM

I wasn't expecting Kostitsyn, but I definitely don't mind a look.

SoupyFIN 01-08-2013 11:36 AM

In before Yashin is invited.

Jeez, Bergy and Matthias must be out for awhile.

PBPantherfan 01-08-2013 12:02 PM

We bringing in Hasek too? Heard he wants to come back.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing sorta. I'm thinking Matthias is probably out long term. Since the injury was supposedly a concussion, that would make sense too.

We're giving Gordie Howe a look too.

Hmmmm, things are getting interesting indeed.

I don't disagree at all but why not bring in a center or two? Perhaps they think Shore could compete for a spot? Camp should be interesting.

Kostitsyn will definitely make this team as long as he doesn't ask for too much money. At worst he's a productive 3rd liner.

I was thinking the same thing. He could be a replacement for Upshall because if we get Luongo, he'd be going the other way.

MillarWithASave 01-08-2013 12:42 PM

NOOOOOOOO. I have never liked AK, I hope he doesn't make the team. He is not Panther material, REALLY hoping he stays as far away from the Panthers as possible.

That's mostly a DUMB statement.

Good invite for you guys, I hope he makes the team. He could be a solid 3rd line winger/2nd line fill-in for the Panthers.

Don't be silly. If he's in shape I have no doubt we'd sign him to a reasonable deal.

I think my head just exploded.

FlaPnthrsPunk 01-08-2013 01:07 PM

Depending on salary and terms, I could see him being a good signing to use on the wing. He's gotten over fifty points twice in his career. He's dropped a bit over the last couple of seasons, but with 2nd line minutes, perhaps maybe he can retain that.

Alright, that was exaggeration. Guess I just have to give him a shot. Hopefully he can change my mind.

I was pretty upset when I read this, nothing would make me want to let the Panthers miss the playoffs. Even if AK is on the team.

Coolburn 01-08-2013 01:27 PM

I'm really starting to warm up more to the idea of AKost making the team. Gives the team more flexibility in terms of its wingers both now while a few are injured and in the near future when guys start returning. Right now if I had to rate my preference for the guys coming to camp it would be AKost, Kovalev then Svatos (though Svatos if he agreed to a 2-way contract would definitely be better option than Kovalev).

Mogo 01-08-2013 01:32 PM

Fedorov still playing?

You know, Peltonen is still playing ;)

Top 6 Spaling 01-08-2013 01:36 PM

I was hoping we would re-sign AK. He was tied with Erat for the most talented forward on our team last year. Really love his game, assuming he can play D and keep his head on straight. Rocket shot.
