Why aren't they trying Grabovski on the wing?

[QUOTE=BallHockeyLegend;61856935]Grabo is on the checking line by default. When there's defensive zone starts, Carlyle doesn't put Kessel's line or Kadri's line out there for obvious reasons. Same goes for fourth line.
Grabo has no chemistry with Kessel, so he can't be on the first line and swap out Bozak.
Kadri has chemistry with whoever he plays with. Grabo doesn't have chemistry with Kessel because he's a shoot first player. Kadri is the best playmaker on the team this year, thus far.
Why not try this?
JVR Bozak Kessel
Grabo Kadri Lupul
Komarov McClement Kulemin
McClaren _____ Orr
Nonis can get a veteran fourth line center who can win face offs. Either keep MacArthur for injuries/playoffs or trade him since he's a UFA for picks or whatever.
After playing Kadri on the wing for two years they learned their lesson, hopefully.
