    Default Andrei Kostitsyn .... Yes, laugh now...!

    So ah, anybody think Andrei Kostitsyn will be back in the NHL for 2013-14?

    He signed a 1-year deal in the KHL because of the lockout, and didn't feel like coming back when the NHL resumed.

    Has anyone heard anything about his situation?

    I have him in a dynasty salary cap league and he's eating up over $3m in cap per year for me!

    Any news, updates, insights would be appreciated.

    I could buy him out, but it's at 2/3's of his contract, so over $2m per year on the books to buy him out.
    Almost seems better for risk/reward to eat the left over $1m in case he returns, no?

    Thanks again!

    Very doubtful. He's probably going to want cash since he can get that in the KHL. This is not the summer for unappealing players to score big on the NHL front.

    Unless you get points for your guys while they are playing in the KHL, I wouldn't even bother with this guy.. No NHL teams are willing to waste a roster spot on this guy, he has KHL written all over him..

    He's finished in the NHL. I don't bank on him ever returning.

    Seriously don't bank on any return from this guy.
