Grabner please. On the wing, on the top line, give him a few games to prove it. Why not see if the guy has something or even a hint of something while we're scrambling a bit for options. As I said in another post, Bernier just doesn't seem to have the game for the top six.
So let's demote Bernier who has proven he can contribute at NHL level, and call up Grabner, who's only SOG in preseason was when the goalie left the net to catch the puck going wide to stop the play, to see if he can put up results?
Calling up Grabner is a direct slap in the face to Shirokov, If we are calling anyone up, it's Shirokov, and if he struggles again and Daniel/Demitra just isn't ready yet, THEN you look into bringing Grabner up.
Shirokov produced right away playing with the Moose.
Grabner, 4GP, 3G 1A, 4PTS +1 Played with the Moose last season. Invisible in Preseason against AHL/NHL players
Shirokov, 2GP, 1G 2A, 3PTS, +2 Fresh with the Moose. Played well in preseason against AHL/NHL players
Who should get the oppotunity?
Grabner showed he was awsome last season in the AHL and the playoffs. AV even said he was impressed and was hoping Grabner could convert it in the NHL level. Grabner was given EVERY single oppotunity in the preseason, he couldn't delivery ANY results.
I'll say it again, Shirokov for a few games, struggle then you ship him back down and give Grabner a few games.
