Petrov has not crossed the pond yet because of his Mother, who is very ill. It's not because he doesn't want to play for the Islanders. I also think that Garth will hold on to KP, if he comes over he has the potential to be a top 6 powerforward on smaller ice. The Isles have plenty of prospects so trading him for a pick doesn't make much sense. Koskinen on the other hand (kind of a pun?) could very well be dealt. He's been good in Finland but streaky and doesn't have a good glove hand. With Poulin and Nilsson platooning in Bridgeport, Mikko will not be missed.
