Grabovski can cycle, work the boards, and shoot better than Bozak. So what if you have to players who like to maintain possession? it's better than having two players who are constantly looking for Phil.
If Phil doesn't have the puck on his stick when rushing up and down the boards, he's not doing much else. He is not the type of guy who is going to find open spots to be hit with passes in the seams - he generates off the rush and uses his speed with the puck to create his own chances.

Grabo is more creative with the puck and attacks the zone in between the circles rather than on the perimeter. It's Mogs/Sundin all over again, for this generation.
