Andrei does well with consistent linemates.

Kovalev, Plekanec, Kostitsyn was an incredibly dangerous line.

Cammalleri, Plekanec, Kostitsyn was another line that dominated till either Andrei got injured or JM broke them up.

Most recently, Moen, Eller, Kostitsyn was a dominating 3rd line.

Then, Andrei was given to Scott Gomez to "get him going". Gomez's style did not mesh with Andrei on the ice and he became a black hole of offence (like many of Gomez's linemates).

Another poster said they wouldn't give up on Andrei till he fails with an elite center, I agree completely. IMO he's been misused and thrown around by incompetent coaching.

All he needs is decent and consistent linemates, not a turnstile and Gomez.
