If the Habs are to trade the Kostitsyns for something useful (and, to be honest, I wouldn't give up on them just yet), it would almost have to be later in the year to a non-contender for an aging top-6 winger who is about to become a UFA. Of course, this assumes that the Habs are still contending, themselves...
Maybe give D'Agostini, who at best can be a 'Ryder-lite'-type offensive winger, a shot beside Plekanec? Pacioretty should be a good power forward eventually, but needs more seasoning. It's a pity that we can't get Alexander Perezhoghin back... he wasn't great when he was in Montreal, but he seems to have improved since leaving, at least enough to warrant giving him another shot.
The Kost Bros will sign with a KHL team sooner or later. If Gainey can find a GM who wants to give him anything for the pair, he should grab it a.s.a.p.
