In order to get production out of SK, and to give him a real fair shot at showing what he can do, he absolutely has to be on one of the top two lines with linemates that can play with him. I think Lombardi would be the ideal centre for him, maybe Erat his other winger??



Kostitsyn could end up being a better acquisition than Lombardi (I think the tennessean overhyped Lombardi by calling him a scoring threat when his season high for goals ever is 20). Also, we lost a bigger scoring threat in Arnott so I do not expect a better scopring output as of yet.

But Kostitsyn is fast, and is out of a huge hockey market city and out of his brothers shadow, fresh start.

I admit, was not wild about us getting him at first, but I think with the right mix, he may pan out very well. Its a high risk/high reward player for sure. He is only 23 years old.
