I believe so. If sergei is smart, he will realize that pacioretty and dagostini are struggling. They are filling roles that sergei has successfully filled in the past.

So if Sergei keeps his mouth shut and put in his time, then the habs will look to him for secondary scoring help. There's not much else on the farm to consider, so sergei must make the most of this opportunity.

If Sergei didnt make a big fuss in the first place, I think we would have seen him up for the home opener, but thats his fault.

I don't know... all depends on his attitude check, I hope he wake up and changes his piss-poor temper and work ethic, cause he has the feistiness and skill to be productive in the NHL.

I'd say yes, if only for Guy Boucher in Hamilton, the way he communicates with the players...

I hope so because the way Patch/D'ags/A.Kost and lat are playing, if he can't do the job either we don't have a second line.

I hope so. Only the absolute upper crust of prospects have market value that comes close to their upside value to an organization. And SK isn't in that crust. So if he doesn't finish the season in Montreal, it probably means we got squat for him. And I would hate for that to happen, since I still think he has good 2nd-line potential if he can get his act sorted out.

We need a top six winger, Sergei seems to be the only guy in the organization who could fill this hole.

If you look at it that way, SK could well finish the season in Montreal. Personally I wish I could believe SK was a solution to the top 6 problem, but he's not. He's made damn sure he's a problem not a solution.

Hell if you're going to pin your hopes on a guy with less than 30 career NHL goals, why stop dreaming at Sergei? Why not buy Enqvist's contract his year and bring him over? Better yet Perezhogin would look good right now. So would Korneev. Emelin. Valentko for the ugly teams. Come on Molsons, open the bank, the KHL teams will sell the rights for the right price. Plenty of cap room till Markove comes back. Demote or trade AK if the signing works out.

And there's my real worry about the Habs new ownership. Do they really have the pockets to throw 5 million or more at a player who they'll dump and/or demote when Markov comes back. Because if they did that would be awesome. The way to really maximize the Habs brand value is to get beyond the concept of a french national team and focus on winning. There's far more money to be made in building a national and international fanbase than in appeasing a few linguistic purists who will never be appeased for long anyway.

It's amazing how in this, re-tool, a lot of organizational depth went out the window. Whereas the team was overflowing with good players just a year ago, now the cupboard is so barren we are desperate to have Sergei Kostitsyn fill a top 6 role.

Remember this depth chart?

Tanguay-Koivu-Kovalev
Higgins-Plekanec-Kostitsyn
Kostitsyn-Lang-Latendresse
Pacioretty-Lapierre-Kostopoulos
Stewart-Begin-Laraque
Maxwell-Chipchura-D'Agostini

A year later, and we're praying that Sergei can fill a top 6 role.
The team, overall, just doesn't seem as deep, and a lot of the problem is the amount of money spent on certain players.

It's true. A year ago, the organizational depth was wingers, now we're profoundly short. Who decided that the Kostitsyn brothers, Pacioretty,Latendresse and Matt D'Agostini (who I have no faith in whatsoever) were the players to keep? Why not trade AKost and keep Higgins, at least?

No, he only came back to give himself value on the market. He wants out. He is even ignoring the press. IMO, he only has one thing in mind, going to another team where he feels more free to do what he wants...

I hope so, but I think he'll be traded at some point during this season.

I'm thinking the opposite, I can't see him get traded, can't see him staying.

Honestly, as a Sergei Kostitsyn fan.. I hope he'll be kept in Montreal but realistically I don't think he will.

AS OF NOW, it seems to me how Gainey is 1 year in advance and not for the good reasons. Gave Price the net, 1 year too soon. Gave a 4th spot to O'Byrne 1 year too soon. Gives some top 6 or top 9 roles to D'Agostini and MaxPac probably 1 year too soon. Sergei still not having play 1 full season in the NHL and he's already in the doghouse....1 year too soon if you ask me.

Which then makes me believe that especially as far as rookies are concerned, we would have sent O'Byrne packing last year and now is a loss is a terrible one. Same could happen to the others. I just don't understand how people can just forget how we've let so many young talents go to see them flourish elsewhere. Aren't you tired of that or do you just love to say the "They would not have done it here" phrase we all love and cherish?

By the way, I feel ackward to look at that lineup....it almost makes me feel as if I miss it....Though knowing what I know now, I would have hated not to have Gionta on board....

My gut feeling tells me yes. But seeing as my gut feeling is usually wrong, I will say this.

I think both of them are probably on the trading block and it's likely every GM in the league knows this right now. Hello Chicago.

Sergei Kostitsyn deserves better than Montreal, so I hope that he leaves.

Here are the teams that I like and follow alot and that I hope he gets traded to:


To Ottawa: Sergei Kostitsyn + Mathieu Carle

To Montreal: Ilya Zubov + Christoph Schubert + 6th round pick


To Chicago: Sergei Kostitsyn + Ryan White

To Montreal: Jack Skille + Adam Burish


To Edmonton: Sergei Kostitsyn + Shawn Belle

To Montreal: Marc-Antoine Pouliot + Mathieu Roy

I don't think he will be around the whole year. He will eventually be called up but will be dealt for help on the blue line. It's the best thing for all involved.

I hope he stays but if we trade him i kinda hope his bro goes with him. Like them both a lot but I think AK play is highly affected by what going on with his brothers situation with the Habs.

I think he will. The farm system is pretty depleted, they need to do what they can to keep their best prospect.
