Nice round up of the season, does a good job of explaining why the team had some difficulties this year. One error that springs to mind (mine, at least) is Kostitsyn scored 2 goals in the NHL (against Phoenix and New Jersey) not one, but if thats all that can be faulted with the article then I guess that speaks of the quality of it

I don't think his skating is that bad. Mind you, I've only seen him play against Junior opponents and not at the AHL level. He was clearly Prince Albert's best player when they came to town. A very smart and gritty player who always seems to be where the action is. Carbo is going to love this guy.

Hopefully, he can be a Carbo with size. But his offensive skills are not as high as Carbo's, though. How is he on face offs ?

I agree. Ive seen him a few times. Extremely sound positionally. Great anticipation. Gritty in the corners. Nice soft passes. Agile in the corners. Good shot

I wouldn't say that he is great on faceoffs but, overall, he seems to win as many as he loses. He's no Yannick Perreault in that aspect of his game but, then again, few No 3 centres are...
