He's not worth the 5.5M he is being paid as a first liner when you compare his salary around the league, thus for now he is the best we have. BUT, and this is a big BUT...
When and if we can find better, Grabo should be out of here, so this team can move fwd. Not the why trade him because he is our best present C you so often confuse it as.
So to recap so there is no misunderstanding between me and you, we hold on to him because we have no one better, but if an offer comes where we can improve on our best Center for 5.5M per, we move him. So this team can get better and move forward.
Heaven knows we have seen enough losing with this core by now.
Someone who gets it.
Toronto will get a better return for Grabo at the deadline then in the off-season.
In the off-season there will be little to no market for overpaid players because the cap is going down and their is already a number of teams that will need to shed salary. We could get stuck with Grabo or he might only be worth a very decreased trade value.
Toronto needs to line up its cards so that we can be one of the few teams to take on significant salary. Other teams have done this and gotten better why is it so inconceivable that the Leafs ever give up the best player in a deal but end up better for it.
