The only way you are going to get NJ's 1st from Atlanta if you also include Grabovski and take Todd White. White has one year left on his contract at $2.4m. He is less than a year from a 73 point season and before that a consistent 35-45 point center not too different to what Grabovski is expected to produce. If paired with Kessel he would probably hit 50+ points again as he is a smart player. White scoring has been way down this season due to arrival of Antropov taking his no 1 center job as well as his entire line last year (including himself) slumping offensively. Little has been snakebit and Kozlov has been very poor. White is a kind of player that need his wingers firing for him to post big numbers. At the moment he is playing out of position at wing as Antropov, Peverley, Slater and Reasoner have been pretty good at center.
You seem to have alot of comparisons between Grabovski and White! Is age not important? You know... since White is 9 YEARS OLDER than Grabs? Seriously man.... the Leafs really aren't interested in 35-year old centers! Or defensemen for that matter. We just shipped out our senior citizens to Calgary and Anaheim (Primeau will be gone soon too) and I seriously doubt we wanna add another one!
