pretty hard to prove you can score at the nhl level when may and maltby are your linemates. Babcock also stated abby will be on the PK full time next year so GR is out of the question.
Abby did not only play with May and Maltby... in fact those two were not even in the lineup a lot of time. There was a point actually during the season where Abdelkader was our 2nd line center for a couple of weeks because of injuries.
He definitely needs to take a step forward in production, which is something he is totally capable of. Any PP time should accelerate that. I wouldn't mind keeping his GR options open, you never know what will happen.
