But I'm happy with the return as of right now but only time can tell if this trade ends up being another Iginla for Joe Nieuwendyk.
I did compare this week the preseason to a AHL+ caliber. So we will have to wait for sure. What Grabovski is proving is that he's too strong for the AHL. Now he'll need to prove he's suited for the NHL and with the preseason he has, expectations are suddenly starting to kick in while nobody had any expectations as far as he was concerned.

I would never compared Nieuwendyk to Lang but I guess that what you're trying to say is that if Lang make us win a cup, it would have been worth it....I guess so....

I'm way more pleased by the potential of Pateryn than by Lang though....
