Pacioretty-Koivu-Kostitsyn.

Careful though, that might make sense.

It amazes me when people bash A Kost.

Can you be more influenced by Bennie Brunet if you tried?

The guy is no superstar, but considering an injury this season, and the constant ridiculous lineups that Carbo makes up for every game, the guy is having a decent season.

Manage your expectations. He is not a superstar. But he is a very good talent.

And stop lumping all the european players into this easy "euro's suck" category. That is simple and stupid.

Spend a second and develop your own thoughts. Freaking sheep....

Crazy how he's on pace for 32 when the PP has sucked and hasn't been on the same line for more than 5 games.

revisionist history is a waste of time.

Hindsight is always 20/20.

Remember..... when we drafted him it was thought to be a steal.

If Kostitsyn score a goal he finally shows his talent, if he doesnt he sucks. Been pretty much that all year long which is quite dumb.

He could become our 2nd highest goal scorer and maybe even first if we get out of this slump in like 10 years. Yet looking at media he cant do anything good on the ice, akways take bad decision and all. People complain we have too many 2 way players and stuff, yet when some guy isnt a beast defensively he's critisized for not being amazing at it. He's about the only one on the team scoring 5 on 5, but he isnt amazing in his own zone so he's lazy and all. ********.

I really like Andrei Kostitsyn but he has to get his **** together.

I don't care about his defensive zone coverage but could he lose more pucks on the boards coming in the offensive zone?
Would also be nice if he implicated himself physically as he has a lot of success when he does.

Carbonneau also needs to use him better but still, he needs to step things up.

And why the **** was he celebrating his goal with both arms in the air in a game that was already lost?

I don't know what's going on but something is definitely wrong on this team and A.Kostitsyn is only a small facet of this whole team's problems.

I know your being sarcastic, but it is encouraging he's on pace to get more goals than last year after all he's been through in terms of injuries, line changes, the PP. Shows great promise. He's only 24 too.

Eh..who am I kidding... I don't like Andrei Kostitsyn and his effort on any given night. But I don't want to get into it right now, because it would be unfair to blame him and not some of the other players on our team.

How come Chipchura manages to escape the wrath of the morons who like to look back on drafts? Imagine Mike Green on this team... Habs = automatic cup contenders. You can't say the same about Carter or Parise because the defense would still not be good enough.

I'm not defending them for not talking about Mike Green, but honestly I dont thiink Mike Green would change much of anything to our defensive zone coverage, to the 15 odd man rushes we give per game and all. Love him, but 1 he isnt the most reliable guy defensively and 2 you need 5 players to be effective defensively, not 1 or 2.

Right. We don't have an Ovechkin playing forward for us...
