Andrei vs sergei

I would like to see andrei Kostitsyn end up in Nashville, would be super cool to have brothers on the team, and with the talk about Martin and andrei's relationship being poor it just may happen, My question is this though,

At this point in time, which of the two do you think has more trade value?

I think Sergei is the better of the 2, but AK may have more value.

Like I Will Son said above, Andrei has the most value in the real world, but SK is the better player.

The reason I ask is because before last season andrei was considered a better player for sure over Sergei, so I am wondering if andrei's talents could end up higher if he also left Montreal? Also, would it benefit both of these brothers to be back together?

I know a common belief is that having brothers on the same team sounds too good to be true, granted it's not the entire reason people are hopeful, however I'm just not convinced that it will go smoothly. They're both LWs, they'll be competing for icetime, and who knows if they even like each other even though they're brothers. Maybe one doesn't want to be overshadowed by the other resulting in another disgruntled Kostitsyn. Also, it's taking another risk on a reclamation project that I'm growing tired of seeing. Yes sometimes it's necessary to get lucky to build on a budget but at this stage where winning needs to happen now, you need guys who are proven.

I agree definitely about needing a proven scorer, but who could we get? Also, would Poile be willing to deal one of Blum, Ellis, or josi?

I think if a top line sniper cannot be had, then Kostitsyn could be our best bet just because i think he has more potential than he shows in Montreal,
Do you Kostitsyn would be a worse pickup than stastny? Weiss? Boyes?

AK would be a better pick up than Weiss and Boyes, not Stastny

depends

sometimes players can't adjust to a coach's system or a style of play or other issues.

Or they adjust better with a change of scenery (as was SK's case)

Just how many players have had their career decimated by signing in The Big Apple ?

as far as playing together goes I watched some of the habs games back in the '08 season and the duo looked good on the PP (don't think played together at even strength until the playoffs started)

then again perhaps Carbonneau knew how to utilize their talents in a way to complement one another - UNLIKE MARTIN. damn stupid geezer

Who can drop Chara???

I would be happy to see him back together with his brother...

They play good together, trust me...

Check out 08-09 season, January I believe, their trio with lang in the middle carried the team...

Kostitsyn brothers played well at times together in the past (Habs fan here) but at times Sergei looked like he was trying to force the play too much to get Andrei passes, instead of just playing his game. Maybe he's smarter about that now, entirely possible.

I'd say Andrei still has the higher trade value personally.

I agree that AK has the higher trade value. I think SK has the better potential, and if he reaches that potential he will be the better of the two. With that said, I don't see a trade happening. Montreal isn't likely to be a seller at the deadline. If they are I wouldn't expect a roster player or blue chip going back. Probably a pick. Possibly a first, but I doubt it. If he does come here it's much more likely we sign him this summer.

I've been clamoring for this move for awhile now. I'll just sit tight and be hopeful.

I'm still skeptical about the idea that adding AK will have an impact on the team. He isn't a huge producer. Having said that, if adding him to the team improves our PP then we win.

I would love to see him end up here via free agency then it wouldn't cost us anything! But don't we need to get someone now so guys like weber and suter know that Poile is dedicated to winning?

If the difference between Weber wanting to stay and Weber wanting to go is Andrei Kostitsyn then we have nothing to worry about...

A blockbuster trade involving a high end sniper coming our way and prospects/picks and maybe a roster player going the other way would show weber that we are dedicated to winning! Then in offseason signing andrei would help to! But if andrei and Sergei are both free agents next season maybe they go to a team that will pay for both of them? Which one would make more money?

Andrei would be the perfect fit for the preds. A true shooter with some potential. He is a smart player on both ends of the rink. Why would we not want him? He would make our line up formidable and I really hope poile gets it done. Picks and prospects (not named Josi or Wilson) would be ideal.

don't forget there's still the waiver wire at the start of the season (assuming 1 or 2 Habs prospects perform better.)

heck they made magic together during the '08 season at least when it worked (it was also the year the Habs owned the B's) Of course we all know what happened next season (too bad really)

Or how about the world juniors ('07 I think). what was it 7-4 victory over the U.S. (AK had 2 goals, I think, both set up SK if i'm not mistaken) That was hilarious watching the US get embarrassed like that

Carbo seemed to know how to get more out of the brothers Martin is a tool that stifles offensive talent and kills confidence I wish we could trade Martin I wanted Muller to move into the head position.
