Report: Andrei Kostitsyn to Predators?

Andrei Kostitsyn to join brother Sergei in Nashville.

TSN’s Bob McKenzie and Sportsnet reporting Montreal Canadiens forward Andrei Kostitsyn could be headed to the Nashville Predators. Developing…

Various sources now claiming it appears to be a done deal. Awaiting word on the return.

**UPDATE** ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun reports the return is a second round pick in 2013 and return the conditional pick they got from the Habs in the Hal Gill trade.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: The Predators have been in the market for scoring depth. Kostitsyn, who’ll be reunited with brother Sergei, should help boost their offensive production, as long as he’s properly motivated. Mind you, his brother’s performance improved after coming to Nashville and playing for coach Barry Trotz, so it wouldn’t be surprising if Andrei responds the same way.


  1. Right of Radulov?
    1st round pick?

  2. What a losy return…

  3. Was hoping there was more assess involved to pry out radulov, but a 2nd rdr for a Houdini who wasn’t being resigned is good enough for me. Now they get a better look at leblanc and, depending on any more moves, Geoffrion.

  4. Assets. Damn phone!!!!!

  5. It looks like there may be a surprise coming today and do not be shocked if Bourgue is also moved as part of a bigger restructuring. They have a 1st (not parting with it unless something big is on it’s way! 5 second round picks between now and next year! We will is if the Ghost and his assistants can play smoke and mirrors here and swindle players away from some sleeping GM, Not likely! As long a Burke does not get a Big named player for off falls I will be okay today. Seriously if he gets a 1st rounder for Grabs, i will fly to Florida with a leather glove and slap Gauthier my self! This will be ugly! Sad day indeed! Please move Campoli, he did not really fit anyway! Take Kaberle with you!!!!!!!!!
