Sporting success is measured and has always been measured by relative success. To win the Richard you don't need to score "x" amount of goals, you need to score the most amount of goals.

To be a 1st line player, you don't need to be able to do "x" things, but need to be better than enough other players.
Totally agree with what you're saying.

As far as selecting one of your options, I think Grabovski is a "#2 centre on a Cup Team" caliber. Statistically it's safe to assume he can compete in a top 6 role, I just don't see him being able to compete regularly against the leagues top 10-15 centres to fit on a #1 line.

His contract is also a good point. I think it may be a little high but the market was used to his advantage. 4.5-5M I would say he is worth now. Who knows though, he gets better every year so he might be very well worth 5.5M for part of that contract.
