Agreed. Both are paid to score goals and put up offence, not to backcheck.

Carbo screwed Ryder up by trying to make him something he was not. The best Ryder was the one who waited to be set-up and potted one. Kind of like Brett Hull. Brett Hull was a terrible all around player, but no one cared because he produced.

Kostitsyn has the size, the talent and the speed to be successful. He's Kovalev-lite or Nedeved-lite. Except those two actually put together good seasons once in a while, the problem was that they had enough talent to do much more.
