Rangers talking to Montreal about the Kostitsyn bros

Quote:
The Rangers have held trade talks with the Habs about Fs Sergei and Andrei Kostitsyn because New York could be without Cs Chris Drury (concussion) and C Brandon Dubinsky (broken hand) long term. Druryís status is uncertain, while Dubinsky is gone 4-6 weeks. Oilers GM Steve Tambellini is also looking at acquiring Sergei, who was a linemate of Edmonton C Sam Gagner when they played junior together with the OHLís London Knights. Montreal GM Bob Gainey would love to move Sergei, who is currently with AHL Hamilton

Their attitudes are bad but their talent is unquestionable. Would be interesting the cost. They would definitely increase the overall skill level of this team.

They will want to recoup the defense men we stole from them with Higgins

Andrei is alright, Sergei sucks. He's a headcase, not as talented, doubt he'll get it together. Yeah I'm generalizing...but whatever. Andrei might not be a bad pickup but I really don't want Sergei

I would swap some defensive prospects but I would leave McDonagh and Sanguinetti out of it. Everyone else is available(obviously excluding Girardi, Staal, MDZ and Gilroy).

Sauer
Heikenen
Potter
Williams
Kundratek

Take them both for free. Or just send us Drury to officially kill our next few seasons.

There is no good Kostitsyn.

The older one is a floater. No speed or hockey sense. Has a good shot but never uses it. I actually like the younger one better as a player but he has a terrible attitude.

If this is indeed true maybe Sather and Torts are now concentrating on trying to add to the talent level of this team to replace some grinder-types. Lisin for Korpikoski, adding the Kostitsyn brothers would most likely be a positive in the talent column. All of them came with their problems, Lisin with his defensive-zone coverage and the Kostitsyns with their attitudes.

Actually, I have seen both Kostitsyns fight. When they are playing well they play with an edge and are very good forecheckers. Its the attitude that needs to change, but they play with more of an edge than most of our top-9.

Andrei's value is at an all time low right now. I don't even know what happened to that guy. He does have skill and I'm sure Torts could motivate him.

As for Sergei, the guy is a fringe NHLer at this point. He wouldn't survive under Torts.

Andrei has been generally unproductive this year and wasnt that spectacular even when he was on his game. The guy makes 3.25 mil a year. Unless a high price tag player goes back this wouldbe terrible.

Sergei is 20. That is why he is fringe NHLer. They both have great skills, its just getting them to harness them and lose the attitude.

Call them on it. We cant move for Andrei unless money comes back. And who would even want to give up value for the guy? He has two okay seasons and carries a large price tag for the next couple seasons. Another 2nd/3rd liner with a large paycheck this team does not need. Unless Redden, Rozsival, or Drury is going back I have a feeling I would be displeased with any deal.
