When you are that type of individual, its going to be common that he bounces around the lineup. He is like a Moen for example. Not good enough to play a top 6 role but over short periods can fill the roll. Not comparing Moens and AKosts ability, just there levels of consistency to play the role of a top six forward. On a contender, its not inconceivable that AKosts is nothing more than a third liner. Its possible most contenders wouldnt want him because he isnt good enough or consistent enough in a top six role and doesnt play a third line role well enough.
