I would rather see him miss the Winnipeg game than play injured like he did against Montreal on Feb. 16th after leaving the game against New Jersey the night before with a lower body injury. He was awful in that one.
Recently though, it's like he's shaved a good few years off his age. Some great performances. Even earlier in the season when he was making mistakes, he was still one of the better D-men on the team. I think Grossmann has had a good year. Sure, he's not good offensively, but in his own zone, he does the simple things well. Looking forward to getting him back.
