If you have the opportunity to acquire him without giving up assets, you do it.

I am going to be very upset if he doesn't end up in Toronto. Russian players enjoy it in Toronto due to the huge population of Russians (or Ukrainians, Belarussian, etc). They feel at home and comfortable.

That is why Grabovski loves it here. That is why guys like Sergei Gonchar live here in the offseason.
You don't evaluate and acquire guys based on "a need on offence".
