AK has a better physical presence and in recent times with us he became pretty good at going to the net or getting the puck from the corners. The biggest difference between the two players is that Andrei could actually hit a higher gear of dominance and take over the ice. We all know he didn't do it more than 25 games a year, but he was capable of doing it. Bourque isn't. I'd rather have 25 dazzling games of hockey from Andrei Kostitsyn than 82 floaters from Bourque.
