Agreed the Grabovski situation is just as cloudy at present for Nonis to deal with.

Based on his contract and production last season he would be near to impossible to trade, and an extreme remotely buyout candidate based on cost ($14.4 mil), so he is coming back. A bounce back year would solve a lot of problems as he is signed long term.

Which now makes the UFA Bozak situation more difficult as a result of Grabs locked in and Kadri needing to be re-signed..

Bozak being Leafs best face-off man and having chemistry with Kessel also complicates the situation as I'm sure for the right $$ Nonis would like to have him return also next year. However locking him up longer term and with the previous cast leaves no center ice room for that illusive #1 center Leafs have been chasing for years since Mats.
