Terrible fit for Bylsma system.
On the contrary. Kostitsyn disappears sometimes, but he always forechecks hard. His perceived lack of effort comes from his lackluster backchecking and his tendacy to go on long stretches without a goal. He is a good forechecker and hits like a truck. He could be a good fit in Bylsma's system. We would just have to live with the inconsistencies.

Obviously, there are other options we can explore, but I think AK could be a good fit.
