True that Grossmann has more giveaways than Luke (32-19), but he has SIGNIFICANTLY more blocked shots than anyone on the team (142 to Luke's 79). The guy is fourth in the league in blocked shots.

And to my surprise, the purpose for this thread, Andrew MacDonald is well in first with 192 blocked shots. I still don't want him if he wants more than what Meszaros made, and I'm sure some other team will give that to him. Someone will give him Carle money and term.

All that being said, I like Grossmann as a third pairing guy on this team. Put him with one of our young puck moving d-prospects next year and I'd be fine with it.
