I'd be content in passing on that deal from the Habs perspective. I think the Habs need to find a way to get Andrei to be more consistent in his mini-PF role... when he's doing both the hitting and the sniping, he's extremely effective. The problem so far is that we just get flashes of that. If it could ever be harnessed, he'd be a more useful player to the Habs than Hemsky would. IF if if. But Sergei has a lot of skill and spirit too that needs some harnessing. It's all a risk, but with the Kostitsyns you have two players who each have some chance of approaching Hemsky's value. I'd roll the dice on them, knowing I'm rolling the dice. Looking for the long odds that get me two top-6 forwards and a win.
