Also, I wouldn't say he is a great PK'er, he is not physical what-so-ever and his stick is very streaky when it comes to knocking the puck out. He has shown he can intercept passes at the blueline, but he isn't all that great at executing those chances.
I'm not trying to sell anyone on Grabner. I like his goal scoring ability and speed. The fact that yrs 1-3 on his contract are so cheap, is just an added bonus.

He scored 7 shorthanded goals in his rookie season, while Neilsen scored 6. They have proven they can be a very dangerous pk combo.
Is Grabner the first player in the league to have a sophmore slump? Is that rookie season, gonna be his career highlight season? Seems like a lot of fans think so
