I think that's what the Habs did wrong with Grabovsky. When you have such a talented offensive prospect, you need to at least give him a chance with the most skilled guys to see what he can do.
Putting those kinds of players in a grinding, defensive, or checking role, sets them up to fail and lose confidence.
With so many top 6 guys on the shelf now it would be dumb not to try it when he's back. After a few are back, then you decide whether he keeps his spot, moves down a line, or goes to Hamilton.
