I am hearing all kinds of good things about Gryba these days which is fantastic. My question is, what part of his game has improved? The last time I saw him, he skated like he had concrete blocks attached to his feet. He seriously lacked mobility and I did not think he had a shot of carving out an NHL career.
I love guys that are not afraid to play physical, throw the body around and stick up for teammates, so naturally I always wanted to see gryba do well, but like I said, I didn't think he had the mobility. Has that part of his game improved at all? Can he play against top lines in the AHL? NHL upside?
I would like to see Gryba replace Benoit on the right side on the 3rd pairing. Let him play with Wiercioch on the 3rd pairing when you want more offence & with Boroweicki when you want more physicality in the lineup.
