Hence my Stajan proposal. Stajan did better offensively than Grabovski in Toronto with comparable wingers to what Grabovski played with last year.
In 2012 Kessel scored a team-leading 55 points in 70 games; Stajan had 41 in 55. Grabovski wasn't bad with 35 in 59, but that's still less in more. Stajan's also miles ahead defensively and on faceoffs - and they're the same age. Stajan is cheaper, too.
I know if the lockout were to last he entire season, and I had the choice of one or the other to replace Val Filppula on the Wings if Filppula were to sign away, I'd pick Stajan.
