That's really what matters, IMO. If Kostitsyn gets 4mil per, long term, then I don't don't think many will be arguing that the Habs should have signed him. We have Bourque signed for a while. We can't be paying all that much for forwards who can't be drivers on a winning team. Cole will eventually start to decline, probably during his current contract, so that might be another complementary forward on the books in a couple of years.
Of course, if Kostitsyn end up getting a contract with similar money and term to Prust... or maybe an even shorter term... I think I won't be the only one who prefers AK as an even strength winger on Eller's line.
