We'll see how he reacts tonight. If he comes out guns blazing, I'm sure he'll stick around.

I hate how TSN has "AK not ruling out asking for a trade" as the video headline. Such ****ing bull ****. He was asked why he played only a few shifts and in broken English he basically said that the coach asked him to play north-south and he's tried to do that lately but he still gets benched. Said NOTHING about trades or re-signing or any of that garbage.

Just more **** that gets thrown at the team.

The AK and SK situations are not the same.

AK has put up numbers and isn't a punk(poor attitude and late night habits) like his little brother was. AK has a family and isn't a bar hopper.

Well he did mention that he hasn't asked for a trade yet, but he will see in the next few games.

No kidding. Put real 4th liners on the 2nd line but put AK on the 3rd. Oh, AK and Eller seem to be clicking, lets drop AK to the 4th line. Its strange, I mean the team wants to win so youd think coaches would try to set things up so that players have legitimate shots to succeed, but time and time again this organization has pissed on players and sent them packing. Lo and behold the team they trade the guy to doesnt find the player to be a malcontent, or lazy, or talentless, the player is given a chance to play where he should play and with players he should be playing with and presto, the player is a valued contributer. Go figure. So AK, you who I hoped would stay, not in hopes you will be a star, but as a big guy who hits, is fast, has skill and can put up 20 plus goals, and who actually likes this team and city, give an interview and say you prefer Budweiser, that you think the whole language thing is funny, that you were surprised to find out that PG has been in management before and that RC is as bright as a black hole. Have fun scoring 30 goals in your new uniform. Thanks for trying to stay here.

I wonder how do you call a guy who was doing same things with SK and when he felt in need of reputation boost he didn't hesitate to pick on his bar-buddy?
Back-stabber? Poor personality? Hypocrite? I'll let you chose. Nothing worse than criticizing person for something you do yourself especially for PR purposes
P.S If you didn't guess yet I'm talking about #31

RDS showed many parts of the interview and he clearly mentioned "we'll see in the next few games" to ask for a trade or not.

RC and Ladouceur might be THE worst duo headcoah/assitant in the NHL.

Andrei has had 4 different NHL coaches in his time with the Habs.

Under all 4 guys he's been inconsistent, plays great some games and is awful the next.

All 4 coaches have had issues with him. He's ended up in the dog house at times.

This is at least the 2nd coach he's spoke out about not liking his role or his ice time.


Maybe, just maybe, the coaches aren't the problem when it comes to Andrei.

The last two years when he's been with Gomez he has looked HORRIBLE. When he's been with Eller he has looked very good, if you can't see that Kostitsyn and Gomez are awful together you shouldn't be a head coach in the league.

Before there was an excuse. He was developing, so you expect it.
Under Martin, he was asked to play defensively when never having done it before. But even then, you got a sense that Martin just did not like AK. His "contract year" response made that pretty clear when he was asked to explain AK's strong start. The way he handled AK, from being the best forward with Plek, to moving him down in order to help Gomez and Gionta, only to move up Gionta a period after making that switch, leaving AK with Gomez and Moen, wasn't really great management. This guy has been crapped on a lot, and more often than not, it isn't warranted.

As for RC, there's just no excuse. He says AK turned the puck over 3times, which wasnt true. AK has been by far the best line mate for Eller, yet he takes him off there and puts him with a player that has done absolutely nothing with every player he has been paired with these past two years.

Gill cost us a goal yesterday, no benching. You got to think it would have been different had it been Ak or Eller.

AK doesn't deserve to be benched. Just like Eller didn't merit it yesterday either.

AK will give you good and bad games, but if you want to help him, don't play him with Gomez.

It's not so much the benching, it's that he's been on the 4th line for 4-5 freaking games. If they are REALLY serious about making the playoffs he is one of the guys they need to get going again...so bench him...THEN give him ice time with decent players to produce.

Good coaches bench players, then the next game give them an opportunity to produce, take advantage of having a motivated player and play the heck out of him. Bowman used to do that all the time.

And if Andrei isn't showing signs of motivation in practice, in the dressing room, in areas the coaches see, but we don't?
