Wow. Couldn't find a job over here?

Would have liked to seen him go to Minsk though.

Fact is ex-USSR teams have hard time getting or holding onto top local players so I'm not surprised Kostitsyn landed with Russian team.

AK is very inconsistent but when he's on his game, he can deliver a big hit.

as our gm once said, minsk has strict policy - no one would have an over-million contract. value of andrei is definitely higher now.

there some talks about younger brother now, though. during last game sergei and matushkin (our sports director) had a conversation about possibility of joining the team.

and also grabovski father said that dinamo have interest in his son as well as astana

i have no doubts that he will deliver big time in the khl and will be among league leaders in scoring

Provided he plays more consistently, that is.

Belousov is a great coach, one of the best in the league, so there is a big chance that Andrei will be a good fit in Traktor.

But is Belousov a coach that runs an offensive system? If Traktor is a trap team, he'll be an unhappy camper.

Well, some would say, that the whole European hockey more or less is based on trapping hockey.

No run-and-gun, but the coach approves all the potential team candidates. If Traktor signs anyone it's not without a nod from Belousov.
