Uhh, that's why it's in quotes. (And what role won't he fit? The role of being better then some fresh from the AHL rookies?) I'm not hoping we sign an old babysitter to try to coach and bring the others along and be a stay at home guy. We need someone who can play. He's not the guy for the coaching role people are talking about in some other threads, but I'd rather have Grebs then what many would consider the wise veteran. I think Grebs still has upside we can use. I wouldn't be surprised if it's true that Poile tried to get him at 2.2, that would be a steal. If he signed him for a bit more and had to skimp elsewhere I won't complain.
He actually is a veteran compared to anybody we have behind Klein and Bouillon and has more experience than Klein. Grebs will be 27, and has 60 or so more games in the league then Klein. What is a veteran? Klein won't be a veteran after this season? How long do we have to wait?
We're not going to do it now, we'll save the money to sign other guys probably, or get a cheaper defender. But I'd enjoy Grebs for a full season. I think he'd help our scoring and despite watching him get burned some I think he can be a pretty good defender.
