Before last season it was OBVIOUS that Grabner was going to be a top-6 forward at the beginning of last season when he was waived by the Panthers? That's a flat out lie, Grabner was given a gift opportunity and made the most of his, but he was just as close to being a KHLer as an NHLer at the beginning of last season.

Seriously, some of you need to ignore hindsight when you're evaluating situations.
