I don't believe that Grabner is on LTIR, just normal IR. From what I understand, the only Canucks on LTIR this season have been Demitra, Hansen, and Schneider. D. Sedin and Grabner seem to have been kept off of it because Demitra's exemption has given them all the room they've needed. Though I suppose they could retroactively put him on LTIR to make him eligible for an LTIR conditioning stint, but as you say, what would be the point given that he's waiver exempt and he'd still have to be paid an NHL salary?
