Grabo on the right wing can be a weapon, I can actually see how it might help him. I'm not saying he is Martin St Louis, for one thing he's not in the same league in hockey IQ, but he plays big and he has speed to come in on the off the wing. He's fearless on the wall, we are just removing Grabo from Center because he can't win faceoffs, or 51% against the weakest faceoff matchups and more importantly he is not a playmaking center. He doesn't help his wingers all that much. As a winger he may actually be a productive player worth 4.75M-5M a season. Not sure about 5.5 though.
