and you've come to this conclusion when I don't think AK has even played 100 NHL games yet.

You know...the player you saw in Kostitsyn last year, isin't necessarily the player he's always going to be, he's going to hopefully evolve and mature...you have to project and based on his first full year, I think he projects pretty well

That would be the right wing, sir. No problem

Andrei even had the nicest assist of the year IMO, from the right wing.

That back hand sauce to Plekanec over The Ogre's stick. That was just filthy.

And to the poster "Habs". Lol, just give it up. Petrov? Ignoring point totals he plays absolutely nothing like Petrov. If you wanna talk point totals, Oleg never had a 25 goal or 50 point season. Andrei did it in his first year.

I dunno why Andrei was still LW when the brothers were united in the play-offs.

They probably decide that amongst themselves.

But this year,

Sergei-Plekanec-Kovalev
Tanguay-Koivu-Andrei

Slide Andrei back with Pleks and Kovy on the powerplays, with Sergei on the point.

That could be greasy.

Because he can contribute from either wing and we needed a top six LW. Enter Tanguay and he should be allowed to go to his natural position...

He still reminds me of Petrov... meaning.. a speedy winger who can feed off of good linemates, but doesn't have what it takes to be a real catalyst.
The difference with Petrov is the natural athleticism. Kost has the physical tool to be a scoring winger and plenty of raw ability. Petrov was limited.

I question Andrei's hockey sense and consistency but he's in a much different category than Petrov. Petrov is a one-dimensional scoring forward who, at his best, was mediocre. Kostitsyn has more potential offensively and also more potential as well-rounded forward. That is, if he continues to develop.

They don't compare at all, unless this is about the USSR connection.

Amazing that all three of those highlight goals had AKost breaking in from the right side. Here's to hoping he gets a crack at RW this year.

With Tanguay, Higgins and Latendresse that can play to the LW, I wouldn't be surprised.

Maybe its the entire salary disclosure that ruins it for me. Rewarding a player after one decent season just seems so risky. These salaries are unreal, for players who haven't proven their worth.

blah, I'm glad its not my money.

I feel like Montreal could be a late player in talks if some of these veteran guys are willing to sign one-year deals. Sundin obviously has been talking with the Habs and Naslund is staying pretty quiet about his possibilities. Given that next year will be full of tough decisions and undoubtedly see players considerably better than Streit leaving, this is the year to go all in on short-run type players, especially given that they have some change in their pockets.
