Plan B: Now What?

106 posts in this topic

i really don't see Lou doing anything else this summer in terms of an FA... MAYBE a trade, but from the looks of it... our current lineup is pretty much it...

barring any random players from Albany who play real well during camp

Plan "B" to Lou is... status quo

andrei kostitsyn could be the solution

It would cover the Poni/Sykora solution.

i know how good he could be too.... put him wiht a team like new jersey or detroit and you'll see... The key with guys like him is how he is coach and manage by the organization...

ha was bad with the habs yes... but remember latendresse, ribeiro, ryder etc

he have speed,big shot and size... work ethhic is not at his best but improving that and we could have high reward

I compare him to poni, but he is way more talented

yeah i know how good he can be, his shot is lethal but still... if we'd sign him and that its a total fail man..... WE would hear about it constantly from those damn habs fans. Of course it goes both way... if he'd come here and produce like crazy then we can make fun of their sh!tty team haha

We can't do worse than the Habs. They got Scott Gomez.

All in all I'd rather have Sergei over Andrei.

The Montreal Canadiens organization is just a terribly managed organization. Its not a coincidence that time after time they get the bad locker room guys. They don't know how to manage the players and most of the time you can feel just by listening to the coach interviews and how the players talk that the relation between the coaches and the players is not one that you would find on a top team like NJ or Detroit.

Latendresse completely destroyed Jacque Martin and the coaching staff in an interview when he got traded to the Wild. He basically described the coaching staff as one that don't know how manage young players and a coaching staff that doesn't communicate with its players. He immediately started producing some real good hockey with the Wild.

Sergei kostitsyn who was described as the problem and the one with the worst attitude between the 2 brothers when he was in Montreal by RDS and their group of jerks immediatly produced good hockey with the Predators and is now a valuable member on their team.

Same with Grabovsky who was described as a team destroyer when he was with the Habs and now he scores 20+ goals with the Leafs every year (except one when he was injured.

So I wouldn't say that Kostitsyn is necessarily what people say about him. He is very talented and I wouldn't mind seeing him in a NJ uniform

Kostitsyn getting all liquored up during the playoffs is a concern, but it's not like he did it on his own. Radulov was there and it might be a case of surrounding himself with some good company.

and apparently andrei was 15 mins late and not partying all night... Anyway just look to kovalchuk under maclean (late at meeting, sloppy etc) than look at kovalchuk today (damn he is good, the guy is a beast)

im sure Andrei kostitsyn would score 25-30 goal each year with us.

i dont say give him the moon... i said call him make sure we are on the same way and propose him a contract around 2,5 millions for 2 years...

dont tell me 2,5 m is overpaid for him, every full season he palyed he score around 20-25 goal... except this sh!tty in montreal

but AK is only if we cant have alexander semin.... at 5 millions per year for 2 years sound good to me

Ok, i definitely don't think you can compare the two. All things said and done, Kovy was very well behaved under a disastrous head coach.

Kovy wasn't known for off ice antics. Andrei did disappear into the ether with his "habits" when Sergei left Montreal. Only when Kostitsyn joined the Preds did the issues begin again. I say being around a guy like Radulov didn't help.

This is Plan B:

Also added to the camp roster are defenseman Thomas Parisi and center Zachary Aston-Reese.

Haha! We just made for the departure of Zach by bringing up another Zach and a guy with the last name Parisi. Yeah! It's like ZP never left!

Personally, I'd like to see the Devils sign Jochen Hecht to fill the void left by Poni. I think he could be a great fit here on the 3rd line and I've heard nothing about him going anywhere. He could probably be had for cheap.

35 years old and has concussion issues. If cheap, may be worth a shot, but Id consider someone like him or Huselius last resorts. A lot of people in Buffalo think he's going to retire.
