Fortunately, a theoretical Grossmann-Gustafsson third pairing means that nobody needs to be played into the ground.
Minutes-wise he already was being used that way. He also doesn't have the same mileage as other heavily-used 35-year olds because of how long he played in the NLA. And he never averaged less than 23 minutes a game with the Islanders. The Flyers lacked the minutes eater when Matt Carle walked, and this year's UFA class is devoid of them, so guess what happens.
