If we keep going to the well with this core of players, and I am not talking about the 3rd and 4th lines or the 5th or 5th defencemen, how is this team going to make the playoffs with essentially the same personnel? I agree Grabo will eventually be traded, it is only a matter of time. Only his biggest backers believe he will be here when this team turns it around. The only promising part of our team is our prospects pool, for this gives up hope. Hopefully they can fill some badly needed holes in the top 6 group and the top 4 defencemen on the depth chart.
Maybe we could trade Grabbo to the Isles for Tavares, who has been an absolute failure as a 1c.
