If it doesn't work - it doesn't work but there's no logic in not trying something that was only tried
for a span of 4 games, three years ago.
It will NOT WORK. They dont play the same game style, theres no point in risking streaky players like phil getting a cold streak because grabo cant set him up. Grabo is NOT a playmaker, you cant make players something that they are not. You cant make komarov a goalscorer, even though the guy gets an "unmissable" chance every game, you cant make players something they arent. There is no evidence that grabo can produce top 6 numbers under RC, and that doesnt help his cause at all. You cant even explain how he went from being great in russia this same year to garbage in the NHL. The GI sickness thing is a joke, and hes not getting anymore chances, its either put out or go home for grabo this year. Say all you want about energy and all that crap, but a 5.5 player NEEDS TO PRODUCE.No production = see ya, and putting him with phil is not a get out of jail free card sorry.
