How is that different versus AK wanting more ice time? LOL)

Evil Russian Andrei Kostitsyn does it to a Belarus journalist who looks like a fat Chris Higgins, it isn't okay because you guessed it, it's Andrei Kostitsyn. (Has had 20g+ seasons multiple times)

No euro haters here though

If I remember correctly most people around here actually agreed with Pacioretty and cursed Martin

Queue member of the haters club to use the tired cliche that Pacioretty tries harder than Andrei.
valid points

my only hope is that somehow (and I'd be pissed too if I was AK) Andrei relishes the role on the 3rd and we get 3 very solid scoring lines. The bruins had depth (although I think we did too if you don't count the injuries) and AFA the Canucks, I think this year we might have even more depth (although less Sedins...then again, didn't matter in the end). The key is getting everyone on the same page and as long as AK wants to play to win (which, unless he's the one scoring, doesn't seem to be his MO) we will be awesome. The good lockeroom thing needs to extend to this to smooth things over with Kostitsyn because we really need him if we are going to contend. Hopefully Markov has a talk with him and JM doesn't give him the cold shoulder (if in fact that's what he does...we don't actually know) since Muller isn't around.
