Trading Grabo for picks destroys any center depth that we have right now.
I think it depends on who Kadri's linemates are. He needs really good shooters to be a good centre because he's a playmaker. Hopefully JVR is as good a shooter as I hear him to be. Kadri has improved defensively and hasn't been given a proper chance to crack the lineup. What I mean is sometime next year before trade deadline, we trade him if someone is there to fill his spot.

If we sign Getzlaf or a number one centre this offseason then Grabovski is expendable since Bozak can play 2nd line. Kadri might be ready for that position also (as he's versatile for centre and wing position).
