Grabner's Ice Time?

What is going on with Grabner's ice time?

His ice time in the last 5 games-

NYR - 11 + (2 of those minutes were Shorthanded)
MNT - 12:21
OTT - 13:11
TOR - 11:24
BOS - 10:52

At the beginning of the season we were seeing 17, 20, 19, 18 minutes of playing time.
Now, he hasn't played more than 15 mins since 2/9th.

Grabner needs to be playing top 6 minutes.

It doesn't sit well with me when Boyes, Bailey, Okposo, Martin, and at times
Mcdonald, Cizikas, and Reasoner are getting more time than Grabner.

Tonight against the Rangers, Grabner played 9:11 minutes at Even strength?! why?
Boyes played 17, Bailey and Okposo nearly had 17 and their shot total together totaled to 3. Grabner had 4.

Trying to get my head around what the logic here is...
Is Grabner a liability at EV? Are they trying to inflate Boyes worth for the trade deadline?
Are they trying to see what they have in Bailey as a top 6?

Grabner needs to get paired back up with Fransie or maybe let's see what he could do with Moulson and JT.
