I watched Grachev a LOT in his post-draft year and he only played with one of the two at any one time.

More importantly and in all seriousness, he was flat out dominant on his own and could skate really, really well for a man that big. In fact, he had a lot in common with Kreider - perhaps a little less powerful and a little more skilled with the puck. He routinely made moves and took shots that made your jaw drop (that were all him and had nothing to do with Duchene or Hodgson). I honestly don't know what happened to him... other than, you know, Ken Gernander.
