How exactly does he lack heart? He's a quiet, shy kid who doesn't speak English very well. He's a young player going through some growing pains, but really, I have never heard of anybody connected with the Habs questioning his heart. IMO his issues are more with getting comfortable in the NHL and confidence, not heart or attitude.

That said as a fan of both teams, I can see why neither team would do the above trade. While neither Kost is a good as Hemsky, collectively they hold more value to the Habs. In addition, the AKost has more potential goal scoring wise, and the Habs need snipers right now, more than playmakers. That said, there is a solid basis, that in any deal, the team who gets the best player wins, so I can understand why Oiler fans would be hesistant if such a deal went down.
