Unless Kabaonov was doing a "friendly" translation for him.
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.
Given how Garth has handled Bailey and Nino....im fairly certain he has noooo problem guaranteeing Petrov a spot on the NHL club next year if it means him coming over.
Having said that, i'll see it when i believe it.
