Do you want White sitting in the press box ?
I'm sure Grabner could crack the Panther's lineup, but he was stuck behind a good team in Vancouver getting limited ice time when he's a skilled player.
I think Florida wants Weiss, Frolik, Booth, Olesz, Stillman, and Bernier to be in the top 6. Maybe even Higgins.
A lot like how Bryzgalov was waived by Anaheim, because he was a good enough goalie to be a number one and went to a team that needed him, Grabner will go to a team that needs a top 6 player and will get his chance to prove he's worth it.
His point was about the fact that you can't base yourself on the performance at camp to explain or not the presence of a player in a lineup. Darche was good, Halpern was OK, White was better. Yet, it means so much. It only means a lot when you actually have a battle between a rookie against another one OR a rookie against a vet you're just waiting for a reason to ship out of town....Aside from that, hope that you play like the second coming of Guy Lafleur to have a spot on the team. And that's not solely the Habs....plenty of examples everywhere in the league.
