Its quite normal in Russia, people dont like when someone is good at what he does. Especially in sport, especially with kids. All the parents tnink that their child is the most talented in the world and many of them just cant understand that there can be someone better, as a result we have many different rumors. Not only Grigs suffered from that. I read same things about Yakupov(that he is 91 indeed, still a year younger than Grigs according to that information) Kitsyn, Petrov, Dvurechensky, Nichushkin(just because he is too tall,lol) russian 97 prospect Ivan Kashtanov("normal 97 kid cant play the way he plays at this age" - one of the arguments on russian forum) Kovalchuk and Ovechkin.
