not at all, to me the Grabovski trade was to get rid of a rotten apple and get anything in exchange, the name didnt stick around, not saying he's a bad player, just never heard of him and never took the time to do the research on this guy
just stop being so condescending jeez, and i'm not saying that to YOU in particular, theres a lot of condescending people on this board its atrocious, I feel like i'm on a Music Board sometimes... "wow you don't know that band who played 1 set back in 1994 in front of 5 people? get a life loser I know them i'm better"
Alright, my bad. I put the label "12 year old troll" to all new members so that's what I assumed you were.

I think he's gonna surprise a lot of people if he plays a simple game. Down the road, I see him becoming an effective 5-6th Dman. His upside? Well without the ability of fighter. and a less offensive game he might end up as a guy playing D likes Bieksa or Mark Eaton
Congrats to Pateryn, got to see a lot of him at Michigan and Hamilton. If he plays it should be interesting to see how he does. Here's some notes on him,
He's got NHL size and strength, plays a solid two way game although this year he's really picked it up in the offensive zone. Knows how to use his size, not overly physical but can dish out some big time hits. Has a cannon of a shot and can move the puck well enough. Plays a smart, safe game in his own end.
Not a lot of holes in his game either, I would like to see him get quicker but even if he doesn't play it should be a great experience for him. He's earned the call up as he's been the Dogs best defensemen of late.
In before the mass flooding on Pateryn for 2nd pp unit posts
