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
Look at how high Carlyle has Grabovski trailing his wingers when they're carrying the puck into the offensive zone. He's often just at the blueline by the time they're below the icing line.

They've also been taken off the PP completely. This has become a shutdown line.
