August was just too quiet, wasn’t it?
Until a Belarussian website, goals.by, interviewed the Brothers Kostitsyn.
Pat Hickey is not impressed and writes:
With the addition of Erik Cole and the continued development of Max Pacioretty, there’s a strong possibility Kostitsyn will start the season on the third line, but someone who cared about the team would see the possibility of contributing to Lars Eller’s development as an opportunity.
Kostitsyn was the Canadiens’ first-round draft choice in 2003 and has developed into a consistent 20-goal scorer who is a plus-16 for his career. But there is a sense of frustration because most people believe that with his strength and his shot, he could be much better.
But Kostitsyn’s streaky play and his attitude are not assets in what has become a tight dressing room, and it’s time to engage in some addition by subtraction.
Example: Well, you saw Well, as I started the season. It’s not bad, I was playing, just shove me started on the third or fourth link.
