Kostitsyn goal is to be a leader in Hamilton

http://www.rds.ca/canadien/chroniques/162261.html

I like the determination of the kid. Great little read.

***************************************
Jeudi 09 septembre 2004 - MONTREAL (PC) - Andreï Kostitsyn se dit déjà plus à l'aise à sa deuxième visite à Montréal. Premier choix du Canadien et 10e joueur réclamé au repêchage de 2003, Kostitsyn a participé en juillet au camp de développement du Tricolore. Au cours des prochains jours, on le verra au camp des recrues de l'équipe où il aura l'occasion d'affronter les meilleurs espoirs des Sénateurs d'Ottawa, des Maple Leafs de Toronto et des Panthers de la Floride au Sportplexe de Pierrefonds.

"C'est déjà mieux que la première fois. Je connais les joueurs, la patinoire et la façon dont les entraînements sont menés", a-t-il dit par l'entremise du dépisteur du Canadien en Russie, Nikolai Vakourov.

Kostitsyn, un ailier droit de six pieds et 208 livres, devrait disputer quatre matchs en autant de jours à partir de samedi.

"Mon but est d'offrir mon meilleur hockey. Je veux faire de mon mieux", a déclaré le jeune athlète de 19 ans qui se définit comme un joueur capable d'amasser des points. Il sera d'autant plus à l'aise cette fois qu'il n'aura pas à chausser de nouveaux patins comme ce fut le cas en juillet.

André Savard prévient qu'il serait imprudent de juger Kostitsyn sur seulement quelques matchs. L'an dernier, Alexander Perezhogin avait vécu un camp difficile avant de débloquer en deuxième moitié de saison chez les Bulldogs de Hamilton.

"Ce tournoi n'est qu'une étape dans le développement d'un jeune, a rappelé l'adjoint de Bob Gainey. Il faut faire attention, surtout s'il s'agit d'un Européen. Il ne faut pas s'attendre à trop."

En santé

Kostitsyn fait valoir que ses problèmes de santé semblent désormais résolus. Lors de son séjour en juillet, il a été examiné par le docteur David Mulder comme cela était prévu. Sauf qu'il a eu deux courtes crises épileptiques durant son sommeil. Les médecins ont finalement découvert qu'il souffre du syndrome nocturne du lobe frontal qui se veut une forme d'épilepsie. Ils lui ont dès lors prescrit une médication appropriée. Depuis, Kostitsyn n'a démontré aucun symptôme de la maladie.

"J'apprécie beaucoup ce que le Canadien a fait pour moi. J'ai été soigné par les meilleurs médecins de Montréal. Je n'ai plus de crises depuis qu'on m'a prescrit la bonne médication."

Un contrat

Kostitsyn a conclu une entente de trois ans cet été. Il vise un poste à Hamilton, surtout si les propriétaires de la Ligue nationale imposent un lock-out.

"Je suis très heureux de ce contrat. Pour moi, il est important que je joue au Canada. C'est ma meilleure option. Je veux jouer à Hamilton et être un des leaders de l'équipe", fait valoir le joueur natif de Novopolosk qui comprend l'anglais de mieux en mieux sans pouvoir le parler pour autant.

Kostitsyn a été le coéquipier de Nikolai Zherdev en Russie. Il espère obtenir bientôt les mêmes succès que la jeune vedette des Blue Jackets de Columbus.

"C'est à mon tour maintenant", lance-t-il avec conviction.

Kostitsyn was the fellow-member of Nikolai Zherdev in Russia. It hopes to obtain same successes soon as the young high-speed motorboat of Blue Jackets de Columbus. "It is in my turn now", launches it with conviction.

I'm always a Habs freak. That mean 365 days per year for many years to come. As for the general freak, well, it depend of the day. Sometime, to say the truth, I'm a freak...most of the time, I become a freak when people talk about love. But only a freak in my head...Lol.

yeah, I'm the same, I work full time, play music on the side,and both of those keep me busy but I'm always thinking habs, I was in a band in highschool that had a song about Guy Carbonneau, well since I wrote the lyrics no one else knew that. I think that's more of a dork thing then a freak thing though. ????

Yeah, but I don't think you can link success to epilepsy, I mean Neil Young had bad epilepsy what has he ever done? So did Truman Capote, Niccolo Paganini, Edgar Allan Poe, Charles Dickens. I started this thread to be a sarcastic jerk but maybe we're on to something linking creativety and success to epilepsy?

Alright for you english folk that don't speak any french what so ever. I took the liberty to translating the whole thing once I saw the few complaints on the google translation. This took me 15 minutes so I expect a few sexual favors

Enjoy!
*********

Thursday September 9th - MONTREAL (PC) - Andreï Kostitsyn says he's already more comfortable in montreal after his second visit. The habs first pick and 10th player chosen in the 2003 draft, Kostitsyn participated in the habs developpement camp. During the next few days, we shall be seing him at the canadiens recruit camp where he will go against the best hopes of the Ottawa Senators, the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Florida Panthers at the Pierrefonds Sportsplex.

"It's already better then the first time. I know the players, the arena and the way the training goes", said Kostitsyn thru the habs translator in Russie, Nikolai Vakourov.

Kostitsyn, a 6 foot right wing of 208 pounds, will play in four games in as many days come saturday.

"My goal is to offer my best hockey. I want to play to my full potential", said the young athlete of 19 years who defines himself as a player capable of accumulating points. He will feel alot more comfortable this time he wont need to bring new skates which was the case in July.

André Savard says that it would be careless to judge Kostitsyn based on only a few matches. Last year, Alexander Perezhogin lived thru a hard camp before coming to life during the second half of the season with the Hamilton Bulldogs.

"This tournament is just a stage in the developpement of a young player, said Bob Gainey's assistant. We have to be carefull, especially with Europeen players. We can't expect too much from them."

Health

Kostitsyn says that his health problems are unfortunatly not all resolved. During his vacation in July, he was examined by the doctor David Mulder as scheduled. But he had 2 short epileptic attacks during his rest. The doctors finaly discoverd that he suffers from a noctore syndrom of the frontal lobe that comes out as an epileptic form. They perscribed him the appropriate medicine. Since, Kostitsyn has not shown any symptomes of the disease.

"I really appreciate what the canadiens have done for me. I was taken care of by the best doctors of Montreal. I have not had any attacks since they perscribed me the correct medicine."

A contract

Kostitsyn signed a 3 year deal this summer. He looks forward to playing in Hamilton, especially if the owners of the NHL impose a lock-out.

"I am very pleased by this contract. To me, it is important that I play in canada. It's my best option. I want to play in Hamilton and be one of the best leaders of the team", says the native of Novopolosk who understands english more and more without being able to speak it as well.

Kostitsyn was Nikolai Zherdev's teamate in Russia. He hopes to soon become the same succes as the star of the Columbus blue Jackets.

"It's my turn now", says Andrei with conviction.
