No surprise about Gleason but I'm surprised about Grebs but not shocked because of all the talk of his season at Manchester. Although, I think Petiot will give him a good run for the 6th spot. I think Grebs is going to learn a lot from Lubo because they have the same game and even Dempsey but Petiot is also going to learn a lot from Matty and Miller. I'm confident in these guys.
I'll take Grebs over Corvo everyday and twice on Sundays!
You wouldn't if you saw him play last season. Grebs is still a work in progress where Corvo can at least presently hold his own.

True as that may be, unless his game has turned around tremendously, he'll only be good for a call-up once or twice this season. It'll be interesting to see what he is able to do against the big boys, but my money would be on him only spending short stints in LA, and that by the time of the second call-up you guys are likely going to be cringing when you hear about it.
I suspect that Grebeshkov will get an "extra" look in camp and pre-season games. Also, I wonder if Grebs will be subject to waivers if he is sent to Manchester. Given the $75k rule it's certainly possible. However I still haven't been able to find out if entry level contracts are exempt??? If they're not exempt, and Grebs is making over $75-k on the AHL side, he's probably going to be staying in L.A. They can get him to Manchester no problem but then he's there for the entire season ...He won't make it through waivers to get up to the NHL...
