Obviously he wants the entry cap ($1.3 million per), which is what most top 10 picks would expect. If they were completely sold on him, they would get it done. True things are in a flux with the lockout looming and the IIHF agreement expired, but both of the other top European picks from last year have been signed by the teams that drafted them already.
Here is an idea if there is a lockout. RDS reported that Jose Theodore was approched by russian teams for the next year. If Kostitsyn`s team is one of those they should tell Jose to accept only if they let Kostitsyn go for a resonable price (or even free) . Just kidding it`s 2 in the morning and I realllllyy have to go to bed. :lol
