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.
maybve you can answer this Qui Gon Dave, i would just like to know if Kosti is at a stage where he can deke with 2 guys surrounding him, like Kovalev, does he actually turn and deke and brake or just good at deking when he's in a 1 on 1 situation
