Grebeshkov

I notice that he now has 2 assists in 9 games and now is a +2 and has 12 PIM. Those that have seen him is he improving, I know he struggled those first few games. Just interested to know since I believe he is better then Strabak and way better then Zizka and Holland. I just hope he and Gleason become the Studs on the back end that the Kings need.... Let me know for those that have seen the Monarchs play

Thanks....

Have seen him in 5-games-

Grebeshkov still has a long way to go, he's young yet and still looks like a "deer in the headlights" most shifts. But considering that there are still 70+ games left, it is probable that he will at least match his career high of 9 points in a season...as far as "Stud" goes you'll need to look elsewhere (Muir perhaps) for a while, a looooooooooooong while.

The only two "studs" on D in Manchester are Muir and Rullier.....

Grebes needs to get some game legs going. There has been little to post about Grebes so far.

Always more than happy to post updates..... it's been a slow start for the Monarchs. Looks like it could be a long season for the organization.

Yes, Grebes does need to get some legs. Given that 10 of his 12 PIMs are for Hooking, Holding and Tripping it appears that some of his PIMs may have been forced by opponents "Louisiana Move"!!!

I don't understand Grebshkov was heralded as very NHL ready and played a very mature two waw game...NOt overly physically imposing but very smart....

Wade Redden was always who you heard....

This kid is having trouble in the AHL...?

No offense to the AHL ofcourse..but I just find that very interesting....

Not very NHL ready IMO or the Kings.

[QUOTE=Qubax]Wade Redden was always who you heard....

You hear a lot about Wade Redden--30 point rookie season when he was 19 ysr. old and 35 points a season ave. over 7-years. The most pts. in one season for Grebs is like 9 and granted that's over about 50 games rather than 80 +/- but honestly, Grebs has never put up anything close to Redden type numbers Jrs. or Bigs.

[QUOTE=Qubax]This kid is having trouble in the AHL...?

He's a long way from home and it will probably take time for him to adjust. Do they play with a Red Line in the RSL???

[QUOTE=Qubax]No offense to the AHL ofcourse..but I just find that very interesting....

I hear what you're saying.

Could very well be a case of the DREAM "I'm going to LA to play in the NHL", the reality "I'm in friggin ManchVegas playing in the AHL!" No offense to ManchVegas but it really is not LA!!! He's a kid, give him time to adjust to life in the "Big City" (USA) and I'm sure he will exceed his RSL numbers!!!!

A 19yr old putting up 7 pts and posting a +13 as a top-2 defenseman in the RSL is nothing to sneeze at. I think given the average level of defenseman scoring in the RSL, the statistical comparisons to Redden are not that far off.

I htought the RSL is twice as hard as the AHL. I think Grebbs will turn things around.

Grebs had a good weekend and scored his first of the season on Sunday afternoon. His goal came during a 4-on-4 with Kelly taking the D-man and goalie to the far right a laying off a diagonal-back pass to Grebs who had patiently (smartly) positioned himself in a trailing position for a pass or rebound. Kelly's move opened a lot of net and Grebs finished.

Although Kelly deserves a lot of the credit for Grebs goal, Grebs showed great vision in getting to where he was to finish.

Grebs did get caught down low earlier which led to a "scramble" but this was as much of a case of the teams cycling breaking down as anything else. Also, Grebs still needs to get a bit "stronger" as he was knocked off the puck a couple times Saturday and Sunday.

All in all, a good weekend for Grebs.

As Tubby Terion said on LGK, we can't forget that Grebs came over with an arm injury which was then aggravated quickly as he began to fit in the Kings injury theme. So, these recent games are probably the first where he has been 100%.

Good point. Besides it is extremly early in the season and he seems to get better in each game...
