i think some habs fans never quite got over "how good he could be" rather than just appreciate him for what he is.

he was quiet as a church mouse in montreal and hal gill vouched for him to poile, so one bad decision, one late night out with radulov suddenly makes him a trouble maker and locker room cancer?
Kostitsyn has never played with an elite center in the NHL either. I would guess that if he were to join the Pens and suddenly take on the work ethic of Sid & Geno, he'd be the guy people thought he could be.

I think sometimes, a player just needs to find the right situation to truly blossom. Not saying Pittsburgh is that place, a few have tried and failed, but a guy that has already proven something in the NHL wouldn't be a bad option (a cheaper option).
