Considereing the minimal shifts that they get together they flat out dominate. Hell, in the last couple of minutes in the TB game last week they were on the ice together and were in the offensive zone pretty much the entire time and creating great opportunities.
Have you seen Grabo's linemates the past 2 years? Do you not wacth how piss poor offensively Kulemin is? McClement and Komarov aren't exactly known for their offense either. Why is it that when Grabo was playing with JVR(you know, a winger that can produce offense) his offensive output increased? And for all your talk about how Bozak is a much better playmaker, he has a whole 3 more assists then Grabo. This all while playing more minutes, more PP and playing with an 11 goal man. If he's so great why doesn't he have more?
Give it up man, you are really looking silly with this Grabo nonsense. Anyone who actually looks at how he's being played and not his contract realizes why he's not lighting it up.
So now you admit Kessel produced without Lupul as his winger? An admission, Bozak gets some credit, cause I know it wasn't because Crabb was his line mate.
Again with the excuses of Grabo's wingers.
Kadri has had the same wingers Grabo couldn't help and make them better, Frattin and Mac.
And this is the guy you want and think can play with Kessel. 2 NHL coaches disagree with you.
Again, Kadri has provided the secondary scoring that has made Grabo a 5.5 million dollar expendable shut down C, Bozak is a better fit as #1C, Kessel and JVR are producing. When we find a true #1C or someone better than Bozak in that slot. Grabo will be traded, he doesn't fit on this team as a #1C, we have a better secondary scoring option in Kadri, and he is an overpaid underachieving shutdown C.
Give it up man.
