I'm going to say yes.

Despite the popular "lazy" narrative, he would actually play well in the playoffs. He was actually becoming fairly consistent as a decent 2nd/3rd line winger last season playing with Eller, when for some reason the Randys decided to disband that successful duo.

He can score 20-25 goals, he can be one of your team's leaders in hits, he can help on the PP, he can set plays up nicely, he has proven chemistry with Eller and Plekanec, and he'll cost you much less than other comparable players (e.g. Ryder). At a 2.5M-3M/year cap hit, I think Kostitsyn would be a good signing. I also suspect he'd have terrific chemistry with Galchenyuk - Kostitsyn has the requisite skill level to complement a player like Galchenyuk nicely.
