.......and MacArthur has said the exact same thing......which kind of tells me that MacArthur has plans of staying in the big smoke
As far as Grabs being expendable, I'm one of those that thinks the signing does make him somewhat expendable. I' wouldn't exactly start shopping him but then again......
I like Grabovski a lot and supported him even when others were totally incapable of seeing how good he really was and what his true upside was. I never saw Grabs as anything less then an excellent #2 anywhere in the league and even a poor mans #1 when need be. I'm sure there are a couple of destinations where a team has an up and coming #1 with an incumbent #1 that will need to be moved(I can think of two off the top of my head). One of which would be a very good addition the other maybe not so much.
