I didn't say that Garbo and Liles are in identical situations, but there are certainly parallels.
Grabo might have been horrible because he was used as a third line center, and he really doesn't have that kind of game. So the mis-use argument still holds.
And, Liles gets paid 4.25 in real world dollars. Real world dollars may not matter to teams like Toronto, but certainly to teams like the Isles.
I wouldn't see Liles as a toxic asset to the same extend as Grabo, but you certainly have some of the same issues.
