What we get is a guy who puts up 40-45 goals and occasionally shows flashes of brilliance but more often than not is just another guy on the ice. If he wants to stay for 2.5 million I'd take it, but his idea of market value is probably 4.5 million and his idea of taking less is still probably more than he already makes. If we can move him for a first rounder we should do it. We'd be dumb not to.
If that last part is what he thinks then I agree with you. Not on the first part though, but I like Kost so I might be biased.
