Grabo can skate but he can overhandle the puck, he is tunnel visioned. It's no surprise he has never had more than 29 assists a season.
The only thing Kadri lacks is experience, he has far more attractive traits in a player than Grabo.
The fact is Grabo has never been able to elevate his wingers, infact take him away from Kule and Mac, who are often regarded as baggage for Grabs. He struggles to produce.
You seem to think that 29 assists is bad.
Last year Grabovski had 28, and that was good for 41st among centers in the league. Only 5 of those assists were on the powerplay, putting him at 24th league-wide in even strength assists. And the only person ahead of him on that list that played fewer games was Datsyuk, who played in 4 fewer games.
That's one less even strength assist than Stamkos and Brad Richards. Three less than Getzlaf. 5 less than Eric Staal and Datsyuk. Only 10 players had 30 or more even strength assists.
The year before he was 23rd in even strength assists in the league amongst centers. Tied with Mike Richards. One less than Joe Thornton. Two less than Bergeron and Eric Staal. 3 less than Stamkos, all these players within 1 GP of each other.
In conclusion, you demonstrably have no clue.
