Obviously, there are other options we can explore, but I think AK could be a good fit.
I agree. Kostitsyn would bea good third wheel on either of the top two lines and more so on Genos. His inconsistent play would be well masked on that line as long as he creates room and can bang in the corners to free the puck for Geno/James.
