In my critical thinking class I've learned to spot false/invalid arguments pretty well. This is a textbook example of a terrible, absolutely terrible, argument.

Referring to AKost - and AKost only - many members of the media, fandom, GMs and coaches and hell even teammates have said the same thing: he's inconsistent, "when he's on" he's a force but he's not always on, etc. Not to mention his issues with every single coach he's had. His issues with communication - not that it's only his fault of course. His on-ice deficiencies are also up for debate but I'd love to see the MathMan stats of AKost. Was he really a 1st line winger? 2nd line winger?

Was he a playoff performer or passenger? Has he previously shown flashes of brilliance and then disappeared?

Riddle me those. And yes he partied a **** TON in Montreal. I've seen him myself, but that's neither here nor there.

This has nothing to do with SKost. Getting rid of SKost was a bad move but that was a Jacques Martin move, Skost didn't fit on his team. Neither did O'Byrne, Latendresse, Pouliot, Lapierre or Dominic Moore.
