He doesn't posses the puck well enough to be on the PP, and Moulson is better in front of the net than he is. As poor as Boyes may be, he's definitely better at possessing and controlling the flow of the PP than Grabner.

I thought the same exact thing, it just didn't add up to me.

Yeah, you'd like to have two guys capable of winning the draw...but I think it's more important to have two guys capable of actually PKing. I just hope Cappy doesn't make that mistake again (not that it was Okposos fault).

Maybe if he got enough minutes he'd get the chance to shoot more.
He had more minutes, and that wasn't the case.

Maybe next season, the isles don't resign Boyes - Cappy can see what Moulson - JT and Grabner can do together.
Grabner isn't a top line player. He's soft and doesn't have good hands, he also doesn't do as well with more minutes.
