Grabovsky uses his speed to create offense, willing to carry the puck at high speeds into heavy traffic areas.

I would assume that Grabovsky would play in Hamilton next year, but it's really hard to say what kind of impact he'll have since he's not played on the smaller ice surface. I have seen him in the RSL and WC's and he's been really impressive at times, the next step is getting him over here and see how he does. I don't think it's overrating or underrating him. He's clearly got talent, lets see what he does with it.
Montreal would know if Svatos was expected to be as good as he is?
