He could be dealt in the offseason at the draft for a pick, effectively making him a rental.
That's not what was b eing said on the Radio in the form of Poile quotes.

Grebs is figuring to come in a million per year cheaper than Hamhuis, and he was being used out of his element in Edmonton on a putrid team. Pair him with Bouillon, let him do his thing offensively, and let him help out our 2nd PP unit.

I like this trade, it's the Hamhuis one I'm now getting worried about.
