Apparently we consider offering Kostitsyn a contract and AK could be a perfect fit for us. Strong talent but a guy who need managment in his lifestyle. They actually said it a low risk really high reward beacuse with his talent we really dont know how good he could be.

Your thought:

mine is that if the guy want he could score 25 to 35 goal every year, I'll take the risk for sure. He is not parise, but the uy can score and we need to replace those goal

I found it. I've never heard of this site before, so I have no clue how reliable it is

Edit: The same article says that Doan's second choice is San Jose, who I've seen mentioned in roughly zero Doan rumors, so I'd take it all with a large grain of salt.

Wait. Doesn't he have the "lazy" baggage too? Why didn't we just sign Semin if we are considering giving Kostitsyn a contract? Strictly because of price? EDIT: I'm on my phone so I can't post a link right now but I saw San Jose considered for Doan.

The translation of the artlicle seemed like it was just speculation and just the authors opinion on why the devils should take a risk getting AK.

I'd chance it. We need somebody, and I'd rather not sign a second tier player to a long term deal and fvck up our cap just when Lou got it down.

AK and the Devils aren't a perfect fit. Lou won't sign a guy who was out drinking late into the night while his squad was still very much in the playoffs and race for the cup. You don't change that kind of behavior. If he wasn't committed then why will he suddenly be committed here? Hell no. Keep potential locker room cancers out.

From what I've heard about that situation, that it was blown way out of proportion. They still broke team curfew, but it wasn't as drastic as the hockey community made it seem.

Made it look all that more foolish on Nashville's part to suspend them both for more than a game.

What choices are we left with.... Trades would hurt our depth. If this guy can replace some of what we lost when Parise went and joined his boy band in minny, I say do it short term. We need to lock up Zajac and others long term, so that should be our new priority.

The right trade wouldn't hurt our depth as we have an abundence of tradeable defensemen. Say Tedenby has a soild year he would have make good trade bait come the deadline. Tallinder + Tedenby (depending on if his year is soild) + prospect and a pick seems reasonable enough. I am HOPING Teddy has Bergfors syndrome...that way we can fleece a team into thinking they are getting a player 10x better then they really are. I heard Iggy brought up before as a potential option by fans and I wouldn't be opposed. Sure he's old but he is a fantastic 2 way player and could make up for the production lost by Zach.

I wouldn't mind taking a one year chance on the guy. Sure you might have to over pay for one year but the risk is minimal and its not like we are right up against the cap

I mentioned in another thread that re-signing Sykora and signing Kostitsyn to a tolerable deal would really bolster the depth of the Devils' forwards corps, and I still think it's a decent move. Kostitsyn surely knows he f'd up and that's hurt his value... this could be a redemption season.

I would kill for Iggy, but that feels like a pipe dream.
