I'm not necessarily against Grigo being sent back to the Q, as I think it's better for his development to play lots of ice time.

BUT, this move tells me that Darcy and Co. think that we're still in things and are going for the playoffs this year. Why on earth wouldn't they demote Porter (no, he's not getting claimed) and play Grigo in his place? Why didn't they give Grigorenko better linemates?

To me, it all points to trying to make the playoffs this year --- which is going to do nothing but further the mediocrity.

Either play Grigorenko more minutes with better linemates (FFS, plugging him right into Ennis' spot made sense to me while Tyler is hurt....just to see what Grigs has)..............or demote him.

Sabres chose to demote him.

Again -- I'm not displeased with the demotion, I'm displeased with what I think the move is saying.
