I guess you forget how Nash, Richards, and Gaborik were going to form an unstoppable line...

Theorize all you want about what could happen, the reality of the situation is that relying on a player who hasn't proven he can produce as a first line talent consistently to do just that at a price tag of 5m or more is a recipe for disaster.

He's also shooting at like 22% which is well above his career average and in Stamkos territory, which unless you're totally daft you'll realize isn't indicative of Grabo as a player. He's over achieving. Doesn't make him a bad player, doesn't make him a messiah either.

Considering the fact he's 7 years older than Stepan taking past production into account is relevant.
