When somebody calls them "Sedin sisters," they automatically lose all credibility.
Is it possible to be in a credibility deficit?
Not really, I was just trolling on the Sedin bit. They'd be costly and do not fit this team in any way shape or form. MB is building a young team and trying to get tougher, that is no secret. The Sedin's are none of those things and come with a price tag they also have no room for.
Kostitsyn will produce just as much as Gionta at this point for way cheaper, already has chemistry with Plekanec and Eller. Many people would agree he would look great with Galchenyuk too.. The blind hate for AK because he didn't pan out to what everyone wanted is ridiculous. Scorers are streaky, period. If he wasn't he would be a superstar. Take him for what he is, secondary scorer who has a lethal shot and can throw crushing body checks. He improved his defensive game a LOT the last year under JM and I think he would be pressed to work hard with MT.
Montreal is on a tight budget with Subban and Eller needing new contracts. Not to mention Markov and Emelin + being stuck with DD and Briere for 7.5 Million. AK would fit, Sedin sister's don't. I get the original poster understood that too..but as a huge Vancouver and Sedin sister hater, I threw up in my mouth a little at the thought.
