read somewhere he got an offer of a year 2 million dollar deal from pittsburgh and got me thinking maybe for a one year deal worth 2-3 million it might be worth the risk

i know we got alot of forwards already but im thinking if he plays with pavel he can pop 25 at least and from what i saw of him he does have good shot and is hard to knock off the puck

He's had a bad reputation but im thinking maybe playing with datsyuk and with the leaders on this team he might be able to turn it around and at a one year deal it might be worth it and it also gives us additional player to use in a trade for a defensemen

thoughts?

Tough to say, AK47 does have a reputation and for his goal production i don't know if it would be worth the risk. The only person that can motivate AK is himself, and it hasn't worked yet...I would most likely lean towards not making that offer.

Not a fan of periods?

The Wings didn't seem interested in Semin when he was still available, so I don't see Kenny pursuing Kostitsyn, which Is essentially a poor man's Semin.

true , thing with semin though was he was looking for a long term deal apparently but settled for one year at 7 million , andrei could be had for a 2-3 million cap hit though alot less $

Is the bad reputation him or his brother or both?



it was both in montreal but sergei has turned it around since he went to nashville , andrei went out late one night during the playoffs last season with radulov and the team took them both out for a game in the playoffs

Then again hanging out with radulov was a mistake alone on the part of andrei ... i cant see any bad influences he would have in detroit

I would be all for taking a chance and seeing if he could turn it around on a low term/salary contract, but I highly doubt we're looking at any forwards since we have 16 right now. Defense is our need now.

Better off seeing what Brunner, Gus, or even Tatar can do over signing Kostitsyn. His peak was 53 points in his debut season with Montreal and it's been downhill ever sense.

It came out after the playoffs that him and radulov were out past midnight by a few minutes and missed curfew because they were getting a late night meal (hey, who doesn't want to carb up?) at the hotel. The hotel they were staying out was also alcohol-free. Bunch of bad media and rumors about all of that.

well, with his brother he was a part of the "Darkest Day in Habs History"...
Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

the kostitsyn brothers were a part of the darkest day in habs history? lol thats far fetched , there was alot of crap going on in montreal

awful trades,signings by gainer and gauthier , letting a ton of ufa's walk and getting nothign in return ... the whole theodore gang vs saku koivu gang debacle , kovalev's lazy play and inconsistencies etc...

i wouldnt say kostitsyn brothers were part of the darkest days in habs history by a long shot lol

Nope. The last thing we need is another forward, especially one who is of questionable utility and dubious work ethic.

I don't see Kenny going after another forward at this point. Unless it's a trade

They were spotted at a bar in Scottsdale (a 45 minute drive from the hotel at which they were staying) at 1:00 AM on the night before the game.

Kenny didn't show one bit of interest in Semin why would he a sign a poor mans Semin. AK47 hardly fits what we need.

This is my stand point right now. Andrei hasn't the fire power of Semin with the same reported "work ethic". So instead of adding another mediocre forward to our line up let's see what our current group can do.

No. And It's sad that we even have to talk about this guy as an option for this team.

haha, no thank you.

GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

almost positive that was all media hype and proved wrong by the franchise after they were eliminated. even trotz came out and admitted it was over curfew not that long and due to a meal. hfboards blew up because it wasnt a good enough reason to bench them. it was good times
