Saying that, if he's peaked offensively ( late-bloomer and 29, btw) and is going to developed into a Michael Peca, I'd take him. A player like Peca on the roster is going to make you a contender. Grabs has been played regularly and is critical against the opposition's top line. He's going to be fun to watch, imo.
Grabo's also being matched against other teams top lines to check them, like being against Giroux tonight ... His first job is to shut them out and then try to provide some offense off of turnovers

While I'd like to see him score more, he's an effective checking centre ... With Kessel's line and Kadri/Frattin picking up the slack, I'm not concerned about Grabo scoring more goals

That being said I'm hoping Grabo can continue to develop his game so that he can shut down teams top lines while scoring 20-25 goals and 50-60 points
