All that said, it amazes me how some decide that AHL time is absolutely needed for a guy who is playing in the second best league in the world- and producing: yes, 20 points in 34 games isn't earth shattering, but then again, Petrov was used in a limited role at the start of the season (third or fourth line, some PP) and has since been shuffled about the line-up, with this key stat: on the season he's avaeraging about 14 minutes a game.

In other words, he's about a 45-50 point forward given third line minutes.

What could he do with Moulson and Tavares?

More than Okposo, if I would hazard a guess.
I love how a player who has never sniffed nhl ice, is somehow a lock for at least 45-50 pts.

Someone post when Petrov actually commits to the Isles.Until then,I can't get excited about anything he's doing.
