2010-2011 Player Outlook: Mike Grier

Mike Grier returned to the Buffalo Sabres last year with much fanfare after his highly publicized exit in 2006. What it showed was a renewed confidence in management by a player that felt jilted after the 2005 team lost a few key members of the team. While Grier's stats weren't gaudy, it wasn't the role he was ever asked to play. His veteran leadership in the dressing room and good puck awareness were keys to resigning him again this offseason.

Much of the same type of play can be expected from Grier this season as well. Most of the season, Grier played most of the season with Tim Kennedy and Jochen Hecht on the third line but does have some ability to move the puck up ice and create scoring chances. The one thing the Grier has a tendency to do is fumble away those chances when they are on his stick.

Grier is a fantastic player to have on your team because he does bring some good awareness up the ice and decent overall play. Grier will be slotted on the third or fourth lines due to the role he plays and the talent that team would want him to face.
