I wouldn't read too much into that. Did Gagnon ask Koivu if Kosty was NHL ready as well?
Likely not given the French media's obsession with ATL (All things Latendresse) these days. I'm sure Koivu feels that Downey, Murray, Peerezhogin and perhaps even AK are NHLers also...which adds up to having too many forwards for too few spots. IMO a thorough reporter would have asked that as well and mentioned it in his article to avoid ambiguity. Was that the case Deano?
Still; Lats is playing well enough to start the season in Montreal, and I hope it happens, even if it means sending down a Murray or Downey. IMO he'll devlop more in Montreal than in Drummondville, both as an adult and a player.
