Kostitsyn brothers to Los Angeles.All Frolov Talk Here

Just heard a rumor...

To Montreal:

Alexander Frolov

To Los Angeles:

Andrei Kostitsyn + Sergei Kostitsyn

Personally I think that we are overpaying for a pending UFA and someone that might turn into a Kovalev in this league (someone who floats and does not care at times).

Discuss!

non merci.

It still wouldn't help us out, as our second line would definitely be missing something. I'd rather package Sergei + pick to get a 2nd line winger, if possible.

Link?

Not sure why teams would just swap problems, and it seems to me the Habs would pick up the bigger problem.

Only thing about this is that Frolov is a UFA at year's end I believe. Not sure I like the idea of losing both Kostistyns for nothing. Although I like the idea of losing them, personally.

Eklund doesn't count as a reliable source.

Given the number of Habs with long term deals and the number of upcoming free agents, it will pretty much be a one year rental. Frolov is likely looking for a Cammy type of Contract.

If Frolov was the missing piece of the puzzle for the cup, I'd say go for it and take my chances that he walks. But let's be honest, he isn't. If we were to trade both Bros, I'd want a more long term solution to the top 2 line problem.

Frolov is a great player. That deal makes sense, but it's pure speculation at this moment...

Tony Marinaro was talking about it on his show too...

I would package the Kostitsyn brothers and a pick for Dustin Brown!

Yeah because someone emailed him about it. He didn't confirm it.

Though i'm not sure i'd make this deal, mainly because of Frolov's impending UFA status...I think Frolov is getting short changed here.

He's a very good two way player, looks like things aren't going well with him and his coach, but these types of things happen sometimes.

Gainey needs to start getting young cheap talent, we don't have cap room for everyone, either get 1 superstar or stock up on cheap affordable young talent.

I also think we'd be overpaying and this deal won't happen anyways.

In no way does it make us better. We'd still need another winger to complete that 2nd line because Lapierre is not the solution.
You have to be quite desperate if Lappy plays on 2nd line.

Frolov for the K ?

Why not ?

S.K is already gone and I'm more and more dissapointed in A.K play and wondering if he can pull it all together sometime.

I wouldn't mind seeing that deal happen but it still wouldn't help us fix that problem on the 2nd line.We need a player that is capable of coming in and playing with what we have right now,if we add Frolov to play on our 2nd line and lose Andrei who is playing on the 2nd line we aren't really getting better.Sergei and something else pick or prospect and then we have a pretty good 2nd line

I don't expect that we'd trade andrei at this point, he's been playing great hockey the past few games and then you're still stuck missing a winger on the top 2 lines.
