Agreed, but after a while it becomes a bit comical to see that the Canadians seem to score at will ONLY when Grebeshkov is on the ice

Perhaps Tambellini's been talking to his Canadian teammates...

I agree, but he's entirely an offensive d-man with little to no defensive game, yet he's facing some of the best scorers in the league on every shift (which he shouldn't, otherwise). In fact, All-Star Games are usually tilted heavily in favor of the forwards.

Poor Grebs...NOT! Maybe the organization should switch both Corvo & him to forwards.... There are no words for their defensive lapses.

People seem to forget that about all-star games.

I didn't forget it at all, but it was still quite comical watching Grebeshkov in the middle of the action for the defending team.


As it turned out, the third period was a little kinder to Grebs, and he ended the night with an assist on a Johnny "Smokin" Pohl gohl, so he was a nifty -3 for the game... this pales in comparison to baby-Pen's defenseman Noah Welch, who was a -6

That makes sense...




...defense and physicality are rarely on Grebeshkov's mind anyway.
