Mr. La Rose makes some good points. I have to disagree with his assessment of Sergei Kostitsyn as I’ve seen him play over the past two years and he contributes just as much to Sam Gagner’s or Patrick Kane’s game as they do to his game. He is a talented player who will have to make adjustments at the AHL level (like any player moving from junior to the pro ranks).
It will be his versatility that makes him a special player who will make the Canadiens next season. Time will tell as usual with young prospects.
