One thing that definitely changed about Kostitsyn last year was his 2 way game improved. He was still inconsistent in getting goals (though better than his stats indicate if you take away how bad he was with Gomez compared to everyone else), but he's been tracking back frequently and has more physical games than not.

He's never going to be a shutdown forward, his hockey sense is just too poor, and he's already made some dumb mistakes this year, but you take the good with the bad and I think the poor turnovers are more than made up for what he brings to this team.

He's not untouchable by any means but making him expendable for a stopgap signing would be a huge mistake.
