From what I can see, he's a big body who never put up big numbers before this year. It sounds like he has some good hands and a good shot. Does he do the things that bottom six players should (strong defense, physical play, battles for the puck, hustle)? Or is he more a big kid with skill who never put it together before this year?
Not a 67's fan but I've seen him a few times this year. He has, indeed, very good hands and a very good shot. His skating isn't bad - nothing great but he gets to the good areas in the offensive zone.
His size is a moot point, because he doesn't use it at all. I'd compare him to Jason Spezza in that regard - most people forget Spezza's 6'4" because he plays so soft. Graovac is the same.
I think part of his problem is that he's top-six or bust, and before this year he's never shown the consistency of a top-six guy.
