Buried in last week's news of Alexander Radulov's inevitable departure from the Nashville Predators was GM David Poile's decision to not attempt to re-sign AK-46. From CBSSports.com:
"I wonder how much of a market there will be for Kostitsyn this summer. The words 'underachieving' and 'disappointment' seem to come up a bit around him and then there is the stigma of this situation, which could linger further. At the least, there likely won't be teams backing up the trucks of money to his doorstep in the NHL."
