I saw him play all minutes of all his games in Montreal. I didn't think he looked particularly useful. Basically, at best, I can see him having the impact of Perezhogin. Which is essentially negligible. That's at best. At worst, he could always look more like the player I saw in Hamilton, which would have been behind Perezhogin in terms of potential impact. I don't see that this is the kind of addition we need to the roster right now.

And I don't hate Kostitsyn at all. I have hopes that one day (probably not next year) he'll be ready to play in our lineup. But I haven't seen sufficient indication that he's ready now to even remotely think he's a candidate to throw into a Game 6 NHL playoff situation, given that we have numerous other alternatives. Maybe if we had 5 other guys clicking nicely on our top-2 lines and we were really cruising along, he could get his feet wet, just for fun. But we've got pretty much nobody going for us right now, and it's not going to be fair to throw him into the current situation amongst our forwards, to him or to us. It's the sort of pointless situation that only true HFBoards dreamers can even contemplate.
