As for Kosto, I would bring him back but the price would have to be right. The NHL is a cap world now and you can't be paying fourth liners too much. The Habs have a lot of big contract renewals coming up and I'd imagine Kosto would be low on the list if he doesn't take a small salary.
Having young players on small contracts who can play at the NHL level is key to success in working the cap
Those small contracts should only be used on rookies, not 4th liners. Like i said twice in this thread, it's almost certian that next year the 4th line will be Laraque-Chipchura-Lappierre, there's no room for kosto after this year
