Sergei Kostitsyn - better the Andrei Kostitsyn?

This guy had a great rookie season with the London Knights and is now in the final round of the OHL Finals. He's second overall in Playoff scoring (32 pts in 15 games) and he also gets some important goals... I'm sure Rob Schremp has something to do with his ability to score, but it's still very impressive.

He is not ready for the NHL by all means but may make a great addition to the Habs in a few years. He's 6 feet tall, 190lbs, can give good hits and can score. He may even trun out to be more valuable then Andrei.

What are people's thoughts on this??

More valuable, perhaps. But I don't think he's close in talent level. I say this after having watched Sergei a fair bit earlier in the year. I would be pleased if he just progressed to the point of making the NHL.

Agreed... you'd almost love to merge them into a single player. Sergei seems to have the drive and a little bit of intangible grit and luck that Andrei is missing. But he definitely doesn't look as smooth or talented as Andrei.

Andrei does things that make you say "wow!", but often they end up not working. Sometimes he doesn't use his teammates very well or put himself into the right place to be used by his teammates.

Sergei sometimes does things in near-invisibility, stealthily getting himself open or taking a fluttering seeing-eye shot that somehow eludes the goalie, but the only times I've ever said "wow!" about anything he did was on a couple of surprising hits he threw. And he definitely seems to have a knack for getting himself into position and feeding off his teammates more.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to the OHL finals and Mem Cup, which probably takes precedence over NHL games on TV for me now. Should be a good chance to see a whole lot more of Sergei.

welll put. The thing I like about Siarhei is that he is willing to drive to the net with the puck, willing to pay the price to create offense. Andrei I'd love to see him drive to the net harder and work harder. What I like about Andrei is that he has the better frame and harder shot (although he needs to work on hitting the net more)

It was a great season so far for Siarhei, can't wait to see what he can do in the future. I thought Andrei has his ups and downs but overall he had a solid season although I would have liked to see him produce more, he was 2nd on the Dogs in scoring and showed some flashes with the Habs.

I see Sergei becoming a Peter Schaefer type player.

I honestly hope he turns out well, But I dont think he's in Andrei's level in terms of talent.
Andrei IMO will be a Star in the show... an almost perrenial all-star...

I liken the situation to the Stastny brothers...
Peter was awesome, Anton was no slouch, both were solid NHL'ers... but Peter was the Star, and Anton was the bluecollar cog in the wheel.
