I look at MZA and see a player who has been dealing with the pressure of the big leagues, and actually handled it really well. His size was never really recognizable as a shortcoming at all, from what I saw.

Grachev may be a late bloomer, but seriously, NYR has to make its mind up on what they want, and when they want it, from Grachev. Grachev appears like this never appearing distant cloud of potential.

My own view is that if Grachev cannot make the move to the NHL over the first half of next season, just trade him an move on. Be decisive. If he does not progress, NYR should be happy enough to admit one of two things:
1. He isn't going to cut it.
2. NYR is not the organization for him

I think Matts Zuccarello looks much smarter and much more suitable for the NHL than Grachev. Frankly, I'm tired of hearing about Grachev's potential.
