That's the long and the short of it. It's a business decision.


*edit*
Besides, playing 20 minutes a night in the AHL is a MUCH better learning tool for Filatov than 7 minutes a night in the NHL. This is good for him, long term.
Da Costa isn't?

I also don't mind playing Filatov in the AHL, particulary because he'll play a lot more. I just hope he keeps his morale.

I'm hoping they make a top-6 line like this :

Filatov-Hoffman-Petersson
