I always liked FLip, but thought he was overrated at times.
He was never the kind of 2nd line center that would carry the 2nd line. But he was good enough to be a 2nd line center if you had a good winger -- and the Wings, have been short in the talented winger department lately
Around this time last year when I was thinking about post-Datsyuk Detroit, I resigned myself to the idea that we were going to have to play Flip about $5M a year to keep him, and that we probably should.
I held to that notion until Lecavalier was bought out. At that point I advocated playing $5,5M a year for 2 years for VinnyLC.
When we didn't, I was back to Flip.
Until Grabovski was available. I was willing to claim him off waivers.
I saw him as a guy who can play two way center OR ride shotgun to Datsyuk
