I hope he does great this year so he can help the habs and wipe the smile off of my dads face for laughing at his play last year.

P.S: my dad is a leafs fan... 2 leafs fans and 2 habs fans under the same roof..insane!

It is no secret to anyone that Kostitsyn is a great talent. He was supposed to go much higher in the draft had it not been for the concerns with his health. We all know about his blazing speed, his great shot and his great vision on the ice, but one thing I've been pleasantly surprised with is his physicality. The guy doesn't shy away from the corners and gives solid bodychecks.

Agreed. If he can put it all together, Kostitsyn is the total package. He's actually the only forward in our system who might have the potential to be a 100-point man down the line. I'm not saying he will, especially given that Montreal seems to kill offensive output, but he's definitely got the talent and the desire. Now he has to go out and execute consistently.

Your Dad is a Leafs fan? Move out!!! Or convince him to the power of the Habs! ;-)

If that doesn't work, tell him that Leafs fans are the last who have to laugh at others... :-)

I hope Andre explodes out the gate. It would be awesome to see him rack up the points. Take some pressure off the Koivu line.

It would sure help the team.

Kostitsyn is the player I'm the most excited to see this season.

The fans will get a chance to see what this kid is made of and what he can do out there, plus he's young!

I think he'll have a great season, but I also hope that people aren't going to try and make him into something he's not and then boo him when he doesn't live up to the unrealistic expectations that were laid on him.

I've noticed that too. It shows he's adapting to the north american game, which is a good sign.

This kid had a wonderful camp.

But if he can't handle unrealistic expectations and pressure he might be in trouble.

Montreal is all about unrealistic expectations and pressure !!!! but if you learn to deal with it you will be a hero .

I think he will be just fine !!!

Could be a great second line or horrible.....................

3 high offensive players out on the ice together, they will either work magic, or turn over the puck a whole lot, lets hope for the magic :)

I really like this kid

Nice to see him get back into the play after getting smoked out there!

Lol, oh man what a hit. It was like he skated into a brick wall.

Kudos to him for getting up after that. :)
