Mikhail Grabovski signs with Washington [1 year/$3 million] MOD warning post 352
 
Daniel Friedman ‏@DFriedmanWFAN 3m
Looks like Mikhail Grabovski will sign with #Caps. Awaiting confirmation.

Igor Eronko ‏@IgorEronko 18m
Belarus TV-channel ONT reports Mikhail Grabovski will sign contract with #Caps today

Should be a great signing.

Good

HarrisonFord 08-22-2013 01:15 PM

Very curious to see what the $$$$$ is

HOLDITHERE 08-22-2013 01:15 PM

Not sure what to think yet. At least George did...something?

AfroThunder396 08-22-2013 01:16 PM

Makes sense

TheOllieC 08-22-2013 01:16 PM

Finally. He'll be a good fit there. I hope he excels.

MountainGoat 08-22-2013 01:16 PM

solid player, very nice

digdug41982 08-22-2013 01:16 PM

Seems like a good fit for that offense.

Dunni 08-22-2013 01:17 PM

Seems like a good fit, and they probably got him for a great price.

DaveG 08-22-2013 01:17 PM

Good player for the Caps after Ribs walked, what the terms are and how he does will determine whether or not it's a good signing.

The first part, agreed. Very nice? How will we know until we see the contract?

Melnyks Mirage 08-22-2013 01:17 PM

Sick signing for them thinking it's around 4 mil but we'll see!

This. I'm guessing 1 year 2 mill

sansabri 08-22-2013 01:18 PM

i'll say $4.2M for 4 years.

AuraSphere 08-22-2013 01:18 PM

Steal of the market, was so sad he left. My fav leafs player, nothing but good things to say. All heart and soul, 100% effort every game. (Excpet the recent leafs games where he was treated like crap by Carlyle)

letowskie 08-22-2013 01:19 PM

4.5 M for 5 years would be my prediction.

Viqsi 08-22-2013 01:19 PM

Well, then. I guess they might actually have a chance of getting somewhere. :)

HarrisonFord 08-22-2013 01:19 PM

I really don't think we're going to see a multi-year deal here. Gonna want a one-year, cheap contract to wait for the cap to go up and get a better $ deal after that.

PWJunior 08-22-2013 01:20 PM

It definitely seems like a good fit, the Caps needed to replace Ribiero. Interested like everyone else with the contract details.

Fearless Leaf* 08-22-2013 01:20 PM

Fantastic, great for Grabo and the Caps. He is a solid player if he. Is put in a situation where he doesn't have rely heavily on defence and checking role.

Wish we had kept him over even if it meant buying out Liles.

Anything under $5 mil is a good price.

Hivemind 08-22-2013 01:20 PM

I don't think this is 100% confirmed yet. Especially given that Friedman even said "awaiting confirmation." Title should be changed to rumor.

@SWhyno: Mikhail Grabovski's agent says client still making a decision. @IgorEronko reports Belarus TV says #Caps will sign him.

@SWhyno: Grabovski's agent says he hopes to have resolution by weekend or shortly after. Short-term deal has always been preference.


Whyno is a former Caps beat writer.

HANDZ 57 08-22-2013 01:20 PM

How much cap space does WAS have to play with?

Kyle Doobas* 08-22-2013 01:21 PM

You're gonna love him in Washington. For a 'skill' guy, he plays with a lot of heart and usually saves his best for big games against divisional rivals.

Cyborg LeClair 08-22-2013 01:21 PM

So what is Washington's center depth with this signing?

Do they still have Ribeiro?

Yeah.

I think we'll see a 1 year deal in the 1.5-2M range.
