Or he could have waited the end of the season, but if Loops went PPG again he'd be looking at upwards to 6 mil. Then again if he flopped we could have gotten him closer to 4. I think this is right in the middle. We'll have to wait and see how this contract plays out.

Personally, I like the signing. Hopefully he commits a little more to the defensive side this year.
Yep equal risk on both sides. The term is kind of set before you even start negotiating at this point.. Grabo contract gives Toronto zero leverage.
