Again, Grabovski also doesnt play small, sure he is literally small, but he plays much bigger than himself, hes a tenacious mother****er.
Like I originally said Grabovski made Kadri redundant 2 seasons ago.

He was drafted as a #2C ... Grabo was meant to be a stop gap until Kadri was ready for full-time duty. Now Grabo is one of the best #2C's in entire NHL - signed long term - and in all likelihood will not be unseated by Kadri in the immediate future. Hence the whole "Nazim we want you to play wing" - "Nazim we want you to be a defensive player" - Nazim we want you to put on some size"

Kadri+Kessel+Grabo are simply too small to all be in your Top6. Especially given the fact that outside of Kulemin we dont' have any True size/strength to play with them.

Small Top6
Small down the Middle

= Not Competitive.

Leaving Kadri as a winger on your 3rd line playing 15 minutes a night - with a plethora of other capable 3rd liners in the wind (Biggs/Ross/Colborne/Frattin/MacArthur/McClement to name a few.

His value would be greater to the organization via a trade. Unless you are willing to trade Grabo/Kessel
