That is being missed here, a lot of you are taking this like its great his pissed off but most of you are not factoring in the way in which he showed it last game.
The penalties came after his demotion. If you were referring to my post AHF, I said I had no problem with him being pissed about the demotion. I never mentioned anything about his reaction on the ice after wards.

I am not referring to anyone's post in paticular, its the collective opinion here that I'm referring to.

Oh ok....my bad.

Edit: I just realized that the OP spelled Sergei wrong. I think it's time for new glasses.

Just ship this lazy Bum out of this town. This team doesn't need young intense, feisty, cocky, arrogant and talented future star players like Sergei.

We need more guys like Chris Higgins who's despite continuously playing on the first line with the best center of the team and receiving first powerplay ice time, managed to put up impressive numbers (5 goals - 4 assists = 9 points in 17 games, with a 3 goals game).

Despite floating around in 70% of the games, missing open nets, can't score or pass to save his life, he is still the future leader of this team that will win you numerous cups.

Wait.

Hahaha.

There were people in the media demanding Montreal to trade Latendresse because he was an albatross and useless. Despite the fact Latendresse played limited minutes on the Canadiens along with the times he was scratched, there was no talk to send him down because he played too much time in the NHL to do so to not be sent down without waiver issues.

Sergei Kostitsyn does not have to clear waivers, much like Chipchura, Lapierre and Price, all guys who had been sent down last season for less than desired play. That is the difference.

Yeah, his brother wasn't our best player last game so that'd be a great idea.

I'm not for Hamilton either, mainly because you'll have another problem on your hands with AK being royally pissed about it.

Maybe Sergei should have started the season in Hamilton. Oh well...

Your point is dead.

But I agree that young Kost needs to see the game from the stands before even thinking of the Bulldogs.

All Carbo said is his patience is running thin and that Sergei needs to work his ass off more.

I don't see the big drama here at all. He's trying to push him to give more is all.

If he was playing poorly, but working hard in order to get out of the slump its one thing.

If he has an attitude problem, as Carbo suggests, then its a different story.

I can almost hear the steam coming out of your ears from here.

Erika, Sergei is a great talent, a player who I can see doing amazing things in the future. But sometimes it's good to have a seat in the press box when things aren't going well.

Something is missing from his game and I wish I could put my finger on it. The last thing I would want is for the Habs to do something stupid and get rid of this kid. That's why IMO, sitting him down for a game or two is the right answer.

Maybe he'll score more goals out of spite

AK is on contract. What is he gonna do? Sit out because his brother is playing like an idiot?

No doubt. I just listened to this audio clip. How we went from that to the title of this thread is quite the leap!

I posted this in the wrong thread but i'll write it again

I understand the disappointment, but I don't get the backlash. We were patient with Lats last year, despite being up and down, the media(French) never said anything, infact they used to question why he would get benched(only got benched 3 times last year, 0 games in his rookie year). No this is not a Lats bash, it's a comparison so don't flip out.

Sergei has played 75 games in the nhl in 2 years, plays with a revolving door of wingers every game, is responsible defensivly and besides his three penalties he didn't play that brutal.

I think he's just getting way too much blame when there are other guys (Plekanec, Kovalev, Higgins) who should be questioned just as much as Sergei, perhaps more considering that they are verterns.

Again I understand the disappointment, but I think sending him down is blowing things out proportion. He's young, hasn't played a full Nhl season. I think a benching is ok, a send down is wrong considering the patience we've shown Latendresse.

SKost needs to work on certain things. But there's a huge disconnect between the deafening repetitive noise regarding SKost on prime time commentaries and his actual play.

My only explanation is that some also hold objectives other than winning. I hope Carbo and Gainey are aware what objectives are being met when making personnel moves.
