Or are we talking about him returning to Russia for a MAJOR payday to play in his home country near his friends and family? That shows a bad attitude?

Every coach and player he has played with has said he is a great teammate. Hell, he ran out of Nashville back to the KHL and they decided they would bring him back as a deadline pick-up after his KHL season was up. That doesn't sounds like he has attitude issues.
I couldn't care less about the late night dinner/drinking/whatever. What I would like to know is did he make it known well in advance that he'd go to Russia for the bigger paycheck, or was it an all of a sudden type decision?
