Same reason why Habs won't call up Andrighetto/Nygren/etc when they struggle offensively. They're rookie pros and have things to get accustomed to before getting the call. Means nothing that a team doesn't call up a player from AHL because he's doing well as a rookie. Kucherov/Namestikov are making the AHL look like junior. Lightning have injuries yet won't call them up. I don't think it's fair to suggest it's because they are good AHLers and don't have enough for the NHL. They just happen to feel they will learn more/develop better in the AHL.
