You probably just don't understand me. Dustin Penner is an upgrade to Andrei Kostitsyn because he is more consistent. But not an important one. My point is, the Habs with a lot of long term contract, the age of the fowards and the number of offensive guys ( Cammalleri, Plekanec, Kostitsyn, Pacioretty, Gomez, Gionta, Eller, Desharnais, Pouliot and Darche ) who can play in the top-9, Montréal is built to be contender and the Habs isn't. If Montréal trade AK, I don't care but I want to have a RW physical player who is also a first liner (I don't think Penner is). I know the value of Andrei is not big (low), but in a package (AK + 1st + Eller/Tinordi.... or I don't know), the Canadiens can get something who can produce like a first liner. The Habs problem is goal scoring and Kostitsyn is very valuable to the Habs because he has the best/dangerous shot of the team and he is our hits leader (very important because the Canadiens is a hard-worcking-but-small team).
