Ugh, Grabner was a complete surprise, stop pretending like he was some kind of "sure thing". He was given away by the team that drafted him, and then waived by the team who he was given to, that's hardly a "can't miss" situation.
Totally disagree, it was fairly obvious Grabner would be a top six forward in the league. He already recorded an NHL hat trick before he was waived. The panthers waived him because he didn't have a good training camp. If the oilers did what the panthers did Peckham would have been waived. It was a dumb move plain and simple and the oilers and leafs weres stupid to pass on him in waivers as well.
