The Kostitsyns with Grabovski
 
I was watching Canada vs Belarus and they announced that the Kostitsyns were on their way... will wee see A.Kost - Grabovski - S.Kost as their first line :yo:

would be funny to see an "accidental" slapshot from the point by Sergei in direction of Grabovski haha

They'll be fine, I doubt we will see any problems.. sadly.

Im sure they will score alot of goals too, getting so much ice time.. aren't they the only NHLers in that team?

Ruslan Salei will probably play too, unless he's hurt.

Last year at the WC's, the Kostitsyns weren't even on the same line...and Sergei barely got any ice time as I remember.

Salei is there.

For real? That's a huge surprise, I woudl expect them to get alot of ice-time seeing as there are limited amount of professionals, I guess there are better Belarus players than Sergei.

Nedved 04-24-2009 09:47 AM

lol. turned the game on, grabs scores.

Belso 04-24-2009 09:47 AM

I'm watching but I can't read the name on the jerseys. Grabovsky is 84 but where are the Bros?? What are their numbers?

Not there yet. Grabovski's goal not allowed :D

Nedved 04-24-2009 09:49 AM

lol. nevermind, no goal.

gillyguzzler 04-24-2009 09:53 AM

Shouldn't Sergei not be helping out Hamilton in their playoffs?

Whitesnake 04-24-2009 09:54 AM

Pretty good period for Grabovski with the linemates he has. You have to give it to him. He never stops working. As much hate as we have for the guy himself, as a hockey player, he definately would have been more useful than Plekanec in this series. Boston would have hate us even more with that guy in the lineup though...

It makes no sense whatsoever. I'm sorry but you kinda have the impression that those guys are doing whatever they want. I'm sorry but a playoff experience with the Dogs is better in my opinion. And not only that but if you knew it could happen, why the heck would you put him on the Dogs list when in the process you don't put D'Ago and O'Byrne on it....It's scary how so many details keep being so disregarded....

xduckiex 04-24-2009 10:02 AM

I haven't been able to watch the broadcast but are we sure it's confirmed that both Kostitsyns are joining the team? The OP said that they announced it on the broadcast but I can't find it anywhere online. I went to the IIHF site and there is an article that says "if the Kostitsyns make an appearance" and they're not on the roster.

Are you really telling me that the AHL playoffs will give more experience to SKost that a world competition? I personally think that playing against better players will help be better.

I do think though that he should never have been on the AHL list, considering how likely he was to make it to the Worlds. But I guess since it wasn't a guarantee that he'd make it, the organization decided to play it safe.

So what does that mean? No WC for sergei or andrei? Is sergei going to hamilton?

I'm so confused.:help:

Honestly, playing against France, Norway and Denmark might not be the greatest opposition. It's not like Belarus would go far and end up playing the top teams a whole of time.

But then, even if you are right and it's preferable, well how come they didn't talk about it? How come they didn't know that he would either be with us or in the Worlds? But then he takes somebody's else place which will be taken by a reserve list guy but not having D'Ago playing can totally be the difference between a good and a great performance.

Too bad they're not there today. They both could have had some quality scoring chances on all these powerplays.

Whitesnake 04-24-2009 10:42 AM

So Shea Weber is a Habs fan? Trying to decapitate Grabovski the way he tried it but didn't work....Time to talk to Nashville to get him....:D

Yea, I got ripped last year when I had Grabovski as one of our top prospects, I didn't know he would turn into such a ******** though, I never saw him pull the crap he's pulled this year when in Hamilton. He was a treat to watch for the Dogs, especially when it was him and A.Kostitsyn on the same line.

Sure it makes sense, I figured S.Kosty would go to the WC's over Hamilton as a guess, I assume that Gainey was throwing him a bone so to speak, as I'm sure he would much rather go play with his brother at the WC"s then be sent down to the AHL again.

As for O'Byrne, he can't be sent down, he's played too many NHL games now so there's no need to risk losing him on waivers, to get some games in with the Dogs. As for D'Ago, I can see why they didn't send him down too, he played only a couple weeks in Hamilton this year, so perhaps Gainey didn't want to send the wrong message, or perhaps he wanted to send him the right message, you are an NHLer now and your time in the AHL is over.

I see no problem with these moves.

There are other teams present, like Russia, Canada, USA, so I'd think that's some good opposition.

As for not talking about it, how do you know that? Perhaps they already talked to management on the subject, but since it wasn't a certainty that Skost would be picked they decided to reserve him a spot in the AHL. That is management's call and might/might not be a good move. I personally would not have done it, but I can understand the logic behind the decision.

My mistake. I focused on the Dogs list as being solely a playoffs list while his name had to appear on the list if he wanted to play with the Dogs just after we sent him.

I corrected myself on the response to mtlloveslucic....geez I hope that name disappears soon....
