Grebs was a rental with a re-sign option. If the 2nd rounder was a waste, then I guess all trade-deadline rental deals are a waste too? We couldn't predict he would get injured. It was a good move at the time.

Not to mention that "no significant game contribution" is false. He pretty much won the game against Edmonton, and he was also responsible for the game 5 "comeback" vs Chicago. Played good in his other games as well. Only knock on him was taking too many penalties in his first 2 games.
