Playing a different position aside, I'm not sure why you think Grabo's game resembles Kessel's at all....

It's not about top six/bottom six, it's just about being matched up against opponents who are best at possessing the puck (or at least getting shots on net as you mentioned)

How do you differentiate between players who are pushing the team to new heights and players who are just along for the ride?
