At this point, it's on Grossmann to do the proving. He's sucked for a long time. Let him earn trust back in practice...or the AHL if need be. a 3.5 million dollar one dimensional dman who has sucked at his one dimension for most of the season isn't exactly at risk of being claimed.
Grossmann HAS had his shot. The last four months have been his shot. He's blown it.
We shall see. Like I said, I've got no beef benching Grossmann. Bench away.
