I wouldn't fret about this too much; he has outstanding speed, but doesn't stickhandle at top speed that well. Doesn't have good vision and playmaking ability. Probably not the sniper that people touted, and scored many goals at the AHL level by being around the net and banging home rebounds. Not really a bad attribute, but not what you'd expect from a guy with his package.

This guy, obviously have never seen Grabner ever play. I don't know why anyone who's never seen a player play, comment on how good that player is.

If Grabner played around the net, and banging home rebounds. He would have made the Canucks team last year. He would have made the Florida team this year. That isn't the type of player Grabner is.


85% of his goals he's scored are snipe shots. If you don't think so, then your either watching another player or you're just making an assumption.

probably true. i said i agree with the post but was focusing on this bit:

i've never seen him play in the AHL and saw just one game with FL (and highlights of the VAN hat trick). seems to have a good, not great shot and fantastic speed but created absolutely nothing.
