Grabovski would get a 1st if he were being shopped, not in the top 15, but I think he'd net us a 1st rounder + B prospect easily.

It would be moronic of Nonis to trade Grabovski right now though, unless he had some sort of backup plan up his sleeve.
I would take Zajac at 5.75 over Grabovski at 5.5 10 times out of 10.

If you think Grabo would get 1st + B prospect then Zajac would get more.

I can see you making an argument for 08/09 or 09/10 but Zajac hasn't produced more than Grabovski in years. I realize Zajac's achilles was injured last year, but this year he's only on pace for 12 points in 48 games.
He's 4 inches taller and 22 Pounds heavier. Grabo is 5'11 183 and Zajac is 6'3 205. I'd say that's quite the margin.

Zajac has battled injuries, consistently he has produced more & he is a bit better two-way player IMO.

Yeah he is struggling but he is the better player. Players struggle. But I would take Zajac over him anyday honestly.

I'm a fan of both players, and I know enough about both, I watch as many Leafs games as I can (I have Center Ice)

Grabovski is better offensively, but Vermette brings the speed, grit and a two way game that I really like, he can also put up points (had a 65 point year on CBJ) so he is a capable 50+ point guy and has a very solid all round game.

For our team atleast, I would rather Vermette myself. Although Grabo is the better offensive player.
