As for Kostitsyn, he received offers from the Pens and Devils, so to say he wasn't wanted is pure falsehood.
Also if Latendresse chose Ottawa over Montreal, then it says something about us. Bergevin needs to find ways of making Montreal more attractive.
The lack of skill in the lineup is a big problem. This is evident with Prust potentially playing on the 2nd line and PP. It is Bergevin's responsibility to fill that hole. There were more than decent options on the market and he failed in that regard imo. And in that sense, so far its no diff from the previous regime in that we can't attract anything more than plugs or bottom 6 players.
He's been the GM for approximately how long now? 4 months! And you're saying he can't attract free agents? Calm down man. He filled obvious holes in our lineup for reasonable prices, signed two of our core young players and had the best draft we've had in years. Patience. Perhaps he wants to build through the draft, building through free agency hasn't been kind to the Habs.
Again why criticize the Latendresse move? He offered the contract, Latendresse himself said he's already played here and wanted to again but only long term.
Please provide the Kostitsyn offers, I've never seen or heard of this happening. Thanks!
