MTL-NSH: Sergei Kostitsyn for Dustin Boyd and Dan Ellis' rights

I don't get this move.  The whole point of trading Jaroslav Halak was that Montreal had, in Carey Price, a goaltender who was good enough to be a starter, and having two goaltenders making $6M+ between them was too large an expenditure.  Signing Ellis blows that budget and amounts to throwing away much of Price's value.

Kostitsyn may have been a headache in Montreal, but he has some value, and the Habs basically gave him away for nothing.  Oh, and Ellis should absolutely test the free agent market.  There are a few teams that have a nice pile of money waiting for him.
