Kostitsyns affiliated with gang member?
It appears the "bombshell" that La Presse was going to report tomorrow is not as hyped as it was. The issue is that Montreal police were investigating a known gang member, 38 year old Pasquale Mangiola, and during their investigations, the police recorded several telephone conversations between Mangiola and the Kostitsyn brothers. Defenseman Roman Hamrlik may also be involved. Brochu's take: Given that there were wild rumors that several Habs players would be arrested, this is a bit of a letdown. The French hockey media strikes again! Source
