The Brothers Kostitsyn

I'm posting this because I don't know all that much about them.

Oh another Kostitsyn brother poll!!! Sweeeeeeet!!

Just kidding bud..we've just had so many of them.

But to answer your question, Andrei definitely has more potential. He's bigger, stronger and has a wickid shot. He could score anywhere from 30-40 goals a season in his prime and seems like more of a sure bet then his brother. The only thing Sergei has over Andrei is his vision...he's more of play maker. Sergei has some maturing to do though and hopefully with age he will learn to be more consistent. They should both me pretty good though

Andrei has 18 goals on the year playing on a different line every game, after a concussion and a tweaked knee sidelined him for a few games. Oh and he also plays on his off wing 95% of the time.

Did I mention he has one of the quickest releases in the league?

Edit: I forgot to mention he only plays 15:33 a night, which is 14th on the team.

I don't think so...Sergei has great vision and will probably the better all-around player (he already kills penalties fairly regularly as opposed to Andrei, who doesn't) but Andrei's upside is star quality while Sergei's is not.

Andrei is bigger, faster, flashier and is a better natural goals' scorer.

Sergei has a better vision on the ice and is an excellent passer. When he decides to play with a chip on his shoulder, he's quite gritty.

Next year it will be the Schenn brothers versus the Kostitsyn sisters.

Kostitsyn's don't have sisters. If they want to get lucky I'm sure they can find someone else.

Andrei has the most potential. Even after last year i wasnt really sold on Sergei. Andrei has potential to reach 30-40 goals in his carreer constantly if he shoots more often. He has one of the hardest shots in the NHL no doubt. I see him being a top 15 scorer in the league in his prime.

Sergei has the potential to be a good first liner or a great second liner. 60-70 pts per year kind of player.

Andrei is better and I'll tell you why.

Sergei's defensive game is way underrated, if the habs would focus on that part of his game he'd be a great shut down winger with some offense. Most people think he'll net 60-70 points, but I don't think that's the case. He'll be a responsible player who can probably chip in 35-45 points/ year...kind of like Mike Fischer.


Andrei, well Andrei has star quality, not superstar, but star quality. He can play any game you ask him to, if you want him to be a sniper, he'll rip em, if you want him to be a playmaker, he'll make you plays and if you want him to play a power game, he'll do that as well, in fact most of his goals come 3-5 feet away from the net.

Andrei is technically in his second year in the nhl, he had a monsterous camp, but suffered a concussion 4 games into the season, he came back way too fast and it took him about 10-15 games to actually get back to playing the way he was in camp. At one point he was afraid to go into the corners and would slow down if a hit was coming his way.

Since Dec.27th he's had 18 points in 18 games and has 12 goals. Not to mention he gets very little icetime, like someone said he's 14th on the team. Also Carbo changes his linemates every other game and the powerplay only just started to pick up, we we're 29th in the league for a good month.

Andrei will be a 30-35 goal scorer, 65-75 point player if he really gets it. All he needs to do is start shooting more, he only has 106 shots in 46 games.

Andrei could be a 35-40-75 type guy.

Sergei has decent second line potential, in my mind. I've just never been all that impressed with his game.
