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.
Yeesh - you actually didn't read my posts.
Please illustrate to me where I said Grabo was a playmaker. I'll wait. I said Kessel is the elite playmaker. Phil has proven he can produce with players that aren't in tune with his style of play so let me re-iterate one more time:
It is a low-risk, high reward scenario.
You complain that Grabo will be unable to set up Kessel which is fair, but show me all the beautiful plays Bozak has done to set up Phil. There is literally NO HARM in trying Grabovski with Kessel. At the very worst, there will be absolutely no difference. Next illustrate to me where I made all those excuses you just listed - I didn't. Those are other posters, I'm merely discussing an idea which made you go off on a eerily-Interactif-like rant.
