If we sign Weiss to 4M per, Grabo is good as gone. Either buy out or for a 3rd rd pick at most, 2nd if we take back a salary.

Then we can use the 1.5M savings and hopefully get Bozak signed. Grabo's albatross contract is setting a bad precedent for contract negotiations on this team.

In short, it is handcuffing any leverage Nonis has, sets a terrible precedent for player agents to use against us for salary negotiation.

Grabo not only hurt this team on the ice, he is still hurting this team in contract talks.
