Good point. I didn't consider that.

Still though, I think Grabovski is tradeable. Even if the Leafs have to retain some of the salary, a potential number two centre with 25 - 30 goal potential has to have some value even if he is coming off of a bad year.

I would just have a problem with the Leafs buying him out and then see another team pick him up and have him have a bounce back year which he is fully capable of.

And knowing our luck that's exactly what would happen.
