I'm trying to think of the last time a team won the cup with one of their top 2 centers being worse than Grabovski. 03 Devils is really the most recent team I can think of, and even then its debatable.

04) Lecavalier, Richards
06) Staal, Brind'amour
07) Macdonald, Getzlaf
08) Zetterberg, Datsyuk
09) Malkin, Crosby
10) Toews, Sharp
11) Krejci, Bergeron
12) Kopitar, Richards

03 Devils had Gomez and Nieuwendyk. Gomez in 03 was probably better than Grabovski now, but Nieuwendyk was definitely a step below Grabovski now.

I think its safe to say that it is possible a team could win a cup with Grabovski as its second line center, but not very likely as history has shown.
