You're joking right? You're not trying to tell us that Lapierre is more talented then Grabovski are you?
Lapierre is a north South Checker with decent speed and xero hockey sense, I have never seen him make a pass nor score a goal that wasn't given to him on a silver plater (empty net). Please don't compare Grabovski to Lapierre as they are much different players. Lapierre is at best a third liner but should be limited to forth line duties on this team as Koivu Plekanec and Grabovski are better hockey players. You may see Lapierre replace Smolinski or Kostopoulos on Thursday but if you ask me Streit is looking a bit worn out and couls use the rest. He made more mistakes then Smolinski tonight.

Grabovski gives Montreal a scoring third line, replacing him with Lapierre would totally KILL that line.
