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.
Stajan was a meh center who made the most of who he played with i.e a product of who he got to play with. He was a guy who racked up assists by default. Grabovski is twice the player Stajan ever was or will be. Are you telling me you'd rather have Matt Stajan over Grabovski?
