The other "drama" issue for both Kostitsyns (and Roman Hamrlik) was their tendency off-the-ice to get things like booze, babes, cars, and party access from Pasquale Mangiola, who was allegedly involved with 'bizniz' operations for a jailed mobster. But (back in 2009) the Kostitsyns were never investigated formally for anything illegal.
Sergei. Andrei had the alleged comments to a Russian newspaper/website this off-season where he bashed the Habs' coaching staff. But he says that was interpreted wrong. Somehow.
While I don't think everything is peachy between the coaches/management and Andrei, I wouldn't put it past the Russian media in trying to add some spice to their stories. News agencies are rarely about facts and objectivity these days no matter where you go...but it's especially worse in places like Russia.
