Would anyone be excited for these guys? Nope. Why Grabo? Because the Leafs bought him out.
That's ********. The reason some people would be excited over Grabovski is because he has been a very decent player in the very recent past, and has only been bad for one season while being possibly misued by a coach that doesn't always give players all the chances they deserve (case in point: Lupul being where he is right now). None of the players were nearly as good as Grabovski was a pretty short time ago. Mueller maybe, but with him it was injuries. With Grabovski, it's only and obviously purely situational. Maybe Antropov, but with him you have his age being a factor. You're talking him down for exactly the reason you state - because he got bought out after a bad year.
