You think AV would put in a rookie over those two guys - even if they're hurt? (see: Hodgson).

Again, Grabner's game only came around when he played consistantly (30+ games) - non-4th liner minutes; not with a "cup of coffee" with the parent club.
That's true about his game coming around. He was a flop with the Islanders for quite a while before he exploded. OTOH I think we could have kept if we really wanted. The 4th line was not good, 13th forward etc.
