Something to keep in mind is those offensive totals came under coach Wilson's pond hockey no defense system that resulted in the Leafs finishing at the bottom of the league standings however. While individual players prospered statistically when defense wasn't a focus under his system, the team wasn't successful.

New coach, new system and different role and responsibilities and thus results for Grabovski. Stats padding cost the Leafs a big overpaying contract in the process for a player now that didn't and likely won't match that offense under the new system.
