This gives grabo an opportunity to produce, and he needs to show us something concrete to prove that he can actually produce under randy. It all starts with grabo, if he shows that he can buy into the team cycle game and get the offense rolling, He will definitely get more offensive minutes, its really up to him, because as you say, randy isnt going to give him anything.
But that's just the thing. Yes, Kadri started drawing harder pairings which is why he was producing less but the issue was that it didn't give Grabovski an oppurtunity because he was still drawing the oppositions top lines and getting the defensive zone starts. Kadri was getting offensive zone starts even when he wasn't producing, Grabovski would draw the defensive zone and the top lines no matter what line he was playing on.
