For my money Grant is not a step down from Johnny. He is not as good a skater but he is definitely no slouch. Grant is more physical and a much better passer (both break out and stretch). I also like Grant's shot more but I do think Johnny had very good cover skills and his mobility was an asset when tracking elite speedsters.


Still this set of transactions was a home run.
I think Clitty is a Better skater not faster but his strides are so efficient... For my money I say he is a definite upgrade over Oduya I just cant believe we got him for free
