In fact many of the things i've read about Kostitsyn indicate that he's a REALLY bright kid who can think the game, but who also has a brain off the ice...
It's hard to imagine him having much difficulty picking up the language... really, once you've gotten two, what's one more.
Good one about Koivu though... i've never heard him speak french.
