I agree with the pay thing, as a Bolts fan I can say safely not a single one of us think he should be making that much money. But the highlighted part is just not true. In both of those season Grabovski has played more games (Grab - 155GP, Vinny - 129GP) and out scored Vinny by 6 points (Grab - 52G 57A 109PTS, Vinny - 47G 56A 103PTS) in 26 more GP. Vinny was a -7 on a team with worse D than...The Leafs, Grab was a +14. Now I am not sure how much PP time Grabs played so I can't comment on that, so I will ask other informed Leafs fans to tell me that.

The ONLY thing that makes Grab more appealing to Leafs fans is the fact is he gets paid less. If it is performance then Vinny plays less games and performs almost exactly the same as Grabs. Imagine if he played a full season. The contract is the only thing anyone can complain about.
