It looks to me like Grebs is right on schedule, it's just that he'll never be a first-team all-star (which, if you thought he would be, would be giving him way more credit than he ever likely deserved). Grebs' problem seems to be that he has to catch up his positional play in NA. Good enough, that can be taught, now we need to see DEVELOPMENT. I also think he needs to have a big defense partner to protect him some. I bet a lot of those mistakes came from being sore as hell and not wanting to take another pounding.

Good point, I like the sound of Denis and Rich Petiot on a future line. It could happen and makes sense from a small man big man pairing.
