Demitra, Frolov, and Roenick.....two of them still down, so why not give the guy a crack again.........especially for confidence.

Congrats to them anyways. Grebs still needs ton of work though.

Meanwhile, the Moanrchs' Brad Smyth is tied for 8th in goals and 7th in points in the AHL and was not selected....

My guess is that they're trying to promote the future NHL stars....Smyth is not one of those.

I still don't see why Kanko was sent down? Play him 2 minutes a night over Ryan.

agreed, KB. Smyth's been playing awesome hockey. but yeah, he's one of the old guys, so he gets slighted in the selection process. damn shame, if you ask me.

for grebs to get the nod, there's gotta be a great deal of management input into the process, because as everyone has now figured out, he sucks.

I don't disagree with the sucks part, but after reading this thread this morning, it got me thinking: who from the Monarchs is actually available to play for the Planet USA team?

Clarke, Noah LW LaVerne, CA
Grebeshkov, Denis D Yaroslavl, Russia
Kanko, Petr LW Pribram, Czech Rep.
Murphy, Ryan RW Rumson, NJ
Nolan, Doug D Quincy, MA
Pushkarev, Konstantin LW Ust. Kamenogorst, KZ
Tukonen, Lauri RW Hyvinkaa, Finland
Werner, Eric D Grosse Pointe Woods, MI

From this list, the only ones I'd personally think would be the correct choice would be Push or Tuk, and I'd pick Tuk because I just think he's an all around better team player. But factor this into the equation: What if the team was already flush with forwards and the only choice was a defenseman? Who would you pick now: Nolan, Werner or Grebs? Nolan is an oldie vet, Werner hasn't played with us enough, and...

I think the obvious choice here is, unfortunately, Grebs. I'll bet this is why he made it over the others.
