LOL, the guy should be on the NHL team already, especially considering how some of the Habs forwards have been playing recently..
To say that Kostitsyn is dominating the AHL is over-stating things but he is one of the most dominant players on the Bulldogs, is one of their top scorers, 4th in the AHL in plus/minus and is playing an all round game at the moment.
You also commented that Grabs should be in the NHL already considering some of the current Habs recent play, but IMO he shouldn't get the call ahead of Kostitsyn (unless we need a centre) for 2 reasons:
1 - this being the obvious one but Grabs is out injured (which you are probably aware of)
2 - he still needs to work on a few aspects of his game. He makes some spectacular passes at times, but he also makes careless giveaways, usually in his own zone or the neutral zone. There is also the question if he is physically ready to survive the NHL at this point in his career. If there is no need to rush him, don't. It's not like the Habs have a tendancy to rush young or inexperienced players.
