But you're right Replacement, nobody can come in and play top6 C minutes after RNH (if he's even ready to go for TC and the start of the season). MacT, I hear there's a top 6 C available who's pissed at his old coach/org and has excellent corsi and puck possession stats....
Maybe for 1 year. But I suspect he wants a longer term deal.
Fact(*) is that Grabovski won't want to come here and be 3rd fiddle behind RNH and Gagner long term.
*And by fact I mean my highly uneducated opinion on the matter.
