Seeing AK on the PK has to do every Hab fan's heart well. At the very least, he no longer appears to be the defensive liability he once was.

Kostitsyn had a great tournament, I hope he'll be motivated to bring the same intensity and dedication with Hamilton when he comes back from his injury.[/QUOTE]


I do not think that he lacks dedication or motivation he is being asked to work on certain things in Hamilton and scoring is not one of them.

Boys and Girls Hamilton is a school for him and he is learning the way of north amercian life he is learning the language he is learning the strategies of the game.

Just remember one thing if you are 18 and are asked to move to Russia and you have nobody and do not know the language how are you going to react!

Alexei Emelin (Mtl), D
An average-sized, but physical defenseman .. skates well .. doesn't hesitate to skate through traffic .. did miss on a couple of checking attempts along the boards .. for the most part played reliably, but did not really stand out in this game.

No man is an army, especially not when it comes to a team sport such as hockey. However, every once in a while one player can single-handedly mean the difference between winning and losing. This past Wednesday at the 2005 WJC in Grand Forks, North Dakota was one of those precious moments, as winger Andrei Kostitsyn--drafted 10th overall by Montreal in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft--put on a clinic of dominant proportions as Belarus has once again stunned the hockey world by knocking off Team USA, 5-3, in round-robin action. Surprise starter Stepan Goryachevskikh made 39 saves to preserve the historic upset for Belarus. Almost three years ago, the Belarusians shocked the Swedes 4-3 in the quarter-final round at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City (helped in part by a 70-foot shot that infamously got past Sweden‚s Tommy Salo). At the 2005 WJC, Belarus struck again.

I also feel that one day if Kostitsyn develops to his full potential he will be a 50 goal man. Boy we have not had one of those in ages

In today's NHL, I'm a little skeptical that God himself could score 50 - though you never know. If Kosty becomes a regular offensive contributor for years to come I'd be one happy son-of-a-*****.
