He actually does average around 20g per 82 games played every year. AK one of the best examples of a 20g scorer you can find. Comparing it to Gomez who has been on a downward trend for years is preposterous.

Kostitsyn's goal per game average :

07/08 - 27
08/09 - 25
09/10 - 20.8
10/11 - 20.2
11/12 - 18.2

His goals dropped after Kovalev left and Markov got injured basically. This drop is also conveniently timed with Martin's arrival and the butchering of Kostitsyn's powerplay time. He's a far better player than people here give him credit for.

Nobody's perfect. Sure, he lacks consistancy. Moen has stone hands, Gorges has no offensive flair and Eller never uses his wingers yet everyone loves them.
Eller had no problem using his winger when that winger was Andrei Kostitsyn.
