If Kostitsyn is going to walk, trade him to Nashville for Hornqivst. He's coming off a bad year, they are very similar players, and Nashville apparently wants Andrei to reunite the brothers.

Plus I feel Hornqivst would explode offensively on another team. Someone who scores 20 goals in Nashville is good for 30 goals somewhere else.

Just cause he CAN speak french doesn't mean he's a francophone. I'm bilingual but I wouldn't say I'm a francophone.

I just mention this because people have this idea that he's a Briere or a Giroux type of franco-Canadian. He's not. He pronounces his last name as "ROY" like a guy name Roy, not "Roi"
