When he gets cold, he's frustrating because you just witnessed 10 games where he was scoring 2 points a game..
Well Kostitsyn is (bela)Russian, so for most ignorant people he will always be a lazy player. That's how things work. If you are Russian, you have to bring a superstar production, else you don't care.

Best example is Cammalleri this year. For the most part of the season he was worst than Kostitsyn, bringing absolutely nothing when he was off his game and having more bad nights (of course he is better offensively but he is also paid accordingly, and I like Mike, but every players except 80pts+ are inconsistent) but he's never seen as a player who ''lack heart''. He is canadian. He is either playing with an injury, coming off an injury, totally unlucky, or he has a shaky confidence.

It's really sad, and the majority of fans won't even admit it, but it's true. Just like P.K. Subban gets labelled as a cocky and disrespectul rookie.
