As usual, when a veteran player is sent out of town for futures, it's traditional for the local media to jump on board and tell us all which player will replace him. I still recall listening to some suit in the Oilers ‘brain-trust’ explaining that the reason Janne Niinimaa was expendable was because Alexei Semenov’s progress was so outstanding. Sweet, sweet memories.
In any case, while I’ve said my piece about the Grebeshkov trade, I figured it might be worthwhile to see how he matches up against his de facto replacement.
