The personal crap set aside for a moment, Grabovski is doing exactly what I think a lot of people expected.

We all knew he was a very talented player. The question in Montreal was: Should he be on the ice over Koivu or Plekanec? If the answer to that was no, and it was, then he had to be moved.

Grabovski, like Ribeiro, is useless outside the top 2 lines and PP. Unlike when we had Ribeiro, though, we have too much depth to let him learn on the job.

Grabs positively handed Markov his jock on that Leafs goal. There's no doubt he'll be a good NHLer.

The rest of it? Fun melodrama, but nothing else.

The only team I expect it will ultimately impact is the Belorussian National Team.
