The fact that the pick was traded for Lang had nothing to do with the Grabovsky trade.

If we trade Subban for a 2nd rounder, it's a bad trade, even if the 2nd rounder becomes a Parise or Toews. Goes the other way too, 2nd rounder is worth a 2nd rounder(can vay a bit depending on quality of draft).

The Grabovsky deal was a good one at the time, how he developped in only partially relevant and what we did with the pick is not relevant. He had not established himself as an NHL regular and was not getting along with management, they traded him before he bolted to the KHL like Perezhogin.
