Personally, based on articles and opinions I have read on the draft, I'd say Stanger31's view is closer to reality than yours.
I never said because his character was an issue, I have continued to maintain that it is not his character, Turnbuckle doesn't understand the word and is making very harsh accusations based on it. They weren't worried about how his character would develop, and not his character at all, but rather that he may not want to play hockey or have the drive for it because of what happened in his life. That is what everything has indicated, that they were worried that his other personal problems would be too intense and severe to allow him to continue on with hockey in the form he would need to keep both mentally and emotionally. I would also question when it was that all the NHL teams actually found out about the problem and learned all the facts of the situation.

Word of advice, don't even bother responding to him in the future. If you want proof, check out the habs board, it is littered with his racist remarks and thoughtless prospect bashing. Or just have fun playing him along, you are pretty good at doing that as well.

Bo if you going to compare the two, try looking at it more clearly. Korneev played for the worst team in teh RSL last year, that's why it was easier for him to get ice time, as the talent level wasn't there.

Now Kastsistsyn has Zherdev, and a few others on CSKA that it's not as easy to get ice time. Kastsistyn has played in 6 of the 21 games, not great, but why not wait till the season is over to see how he does.
