UNLESS they are superstars ( which Frolov is not ).

2. This team is missing a top 6 winger. So they give two up to get one back !!

I think BG will trade S Kost and maybe his brother along with him, but definitely for a better package than that.
Honestly, I think you are really over-rating the value of the Kostitsyns.

Andrei CAN be a top 6 winger, but he certainly hasn't played like one consistently for over a year now. He seems to have taken a big step back from his 07-08 season. I'm still optimistic, but we can't be waiting around for him to finally reach his potential forever. If a good opportunity to move him arises, it wouldn't be the worst thing... especially if it means getting more of an established player back.

And with Sergei... certainly not even close to a top 6 forward right now but has the potential to be. But these recent issues have undoubtedly made his trade value plummet. Not many teams are lining up to get a young player with that kind of baggage.
