You must have seen Grebs on a good day. I've watched him now for 28 home games & several away games. He's incredibly inconsistent with his puck handling skills from shift to shift, never mind from game to game. Yeah, he has a nice shot, and his points total is pretty good, but I can't tell you the number of times he's coughed up the puck in front of his goalies which directly lead to the opponents scoring. Is he talented? You bet. Is he the Monarchs' best defenseman? Not by a long shot.
As for Volchenkov, he's likely to be facing a suspension, because he damn near took Connor James' head off with a vicious elbow in last night's game.
