It is obvious that Grabovsky is only a team player if the coach does what he wants..
I always wanted him to succeed in Montreal. I didn't really like him leaving the team because he wasn't happy with his ice time on a team that finished 1st in the East. He's a younger player who wants to prove himself so I forgave him for that. I was happy that he was traded to a team that could use his services and would give him ice time.
I didn't see the stick poke on Price, but I don't respect that type of action.. He over reacted in his first game against his former team who he believed let him down. It's only normal to want to brag and show they made a mistake in not playing him, but hopefully he thought about what he did to Price and regrets it.. He has lots of time to mature and if he does, I'll forgive him for it. But if he doesn't, then I'll just keep losing respect for him.
Ribs is a good example. He felt under appreciated by the Habs and had lots of mean things to say about the team at first, but after a season, he had no more bad feelings and even realized Bob did him a favor.. Grabovsky may realize in time Guy did his job and got the team to win and it wasn't anything against him. He may also realize in time, like Ribs, that Bob did him a favor..
As for Sergei, He's even younger. It's never easy to stay calm when someone is bragging in your face. I hope someone on the team talked to him to remind him that it's only one game and that Grabs has a lot of frustration against the Habs at the moment and not to let it bother him. There's no point going out and giving him a Burtuzzi just because he's arrogant. The best way to get him back is to play great hockey and start beating Toronto all season long.
