Im pretty happy about this signing. Grier has hands of stone , but brings a strong work ethic, leadership and unless things changed in SanJose I remember him being an execptional pk forward. He is going to be a great addition to the bottom 6 forwards
But I must say , IMO he was the last ex Sabre other then Kozlov who I would have thought we'd see a return from.
OMG, how many players can make the roster? Our waiver wire will be loaded because there's people coming in but no one moving out. I got it...1 goalie, 9 defensemen and 13 forwards...wait we still have too many players.
How about stockpiling draft picks with the trades?
So, I guess this should satisfy those of us who were looking for something like a version of Rivet for the forwards?
I've heard Chain and others talk about this, but hopefully we have enough work ethic and accountability in the locker room now to shift the balance, and put those guys who we've seen take a night off or not stick up for their teammates on notice that that kind of **** won't be tolerated any more.
