Here's a look at what some nobodies on his very team are doing.
Derek Ryan has 16-23-39 in 27 games.
John Hughes has 12-25-37 in 27 games.
Derek Damon has 13-16-29 in 27 games.
Dman Mario Altmann has 9-18-27 in 27 games.

The league features some fun pond hockey-style play and some real barn burners, but it is by in large an ECHL level league and Grabner looks a bit like many NHLers in Europe right now - just playing to stay fit but by no means get hurt.

Just a note along the boards...
Well, a friend of mine did a trial as a dman with one of the best teams 2 seasons ago. Normally he is playing in the third tier in Sweden. And he made the team, and the team did very good in the playoffs.

With other words, Grabner has not been very impressive in that league. He should be killing that league.
