So your saying that Grabovski is done in just a couple of seasons then, right?

That means that Richards has 4 more seasons left him at least.

Grabo is more than a year older than Richards and is of a smaller build. Darcy Tucker played 14 seasons in the NHL and topped out at 5'10" 172lbs. He had a much smaller frame then either Grabo (well not a much smaller frame but smaller than Grabo by 10lbs) or Richards (199lbs).

I think it is fair to say that both Grabo and Richards should have at least another 4 or 5 solid years in them. Richards is just the better all around player who has proven himself a champion and a critical part of each championship team he has been on where Grabovski hasn't. Well not yet anyway but who knows how that will go.

I think other than around Leafworld you will be really hard pressed to find too many people who would rather have MG over MR and I also think that most people would laugh at the idea.
