If Grachev got to play against Sweden, US and Canada (this is presuming that Russia wouldn't have lost to the Swiss with Grachev in the line up), it would be a good experience for him because the talent on those teams is superior to those of the AHL teams. Less experience, but definitely more raw talent.

It would be a worthwhile experience for him.
