nsh have a ton of grabovski-types both on the roster and in the system, same goes for fratton and macarthur.

the only interest NSH would have is a top line goalscorer like kessel and JVR. and the leafs don't want to part with them (for good reason) so there's not much that can be done

and also we need a center like super-bad, more so than we need a gardiner or whomever.
I still feel Grabo is a very good player, perhaps overpaid by about 1mil but he's a lot better than Legwand or Gaustad in a top 6 role IMO. And if he gets put there instead of a checking role, I think he has a chance to shine again like previous years (I'm not nearly as low on him as other short sighted leaf fans though but I think Carlyse is treating him poorly here).

Gardiner is a stud. And I'd rather give the 21st than Frattin.

I can see why Preds don't do this though. I wouldn't do the package for Drouin, we're giving a lot up. I'd do it for Barkov because I'm extremely high on him.
