If Grachev had stayed in juniors and tore it up, then moved on to the AHL and put up the numbers he did this year, no one would be suggesting we should trade him. Some people just don't seem to grasp how young he still is development-wise.

Sauer was a 2nd round pick and didn't make the Rangers until he was 23. Now everyone who had given up on him loves him. Good thing we didn't trade him, huh? I think we can afford to give a 3rd round pick in Grachev another couple years to see how he progresses, though I don't think he'll need that long. I expect him to be a full time Ranger by the start of the 2012 season.
