Grabovski. Contact is kind of a minus, but would still take him.

If we take into consideration contract the DD. Mind you, DD doesn't make 3.5, he makes <1 mil currently.

http://www.capgeek.com/player/98

either way...Grabo is the better player overall. He's just not delivering this year. I'm biased and I like DD and like his contract as well(over Grabo's) but I don't fault a person for saying grabo.

Not even, Grabo best season is 58 pts while DD best season is 60 pts. DD is outproducing him this season as well.

Grabovski gets much, much tougher matchups

One day, Grabovski will play for a team whose coach doesn't misuse him and people will realize how insanely good he is.

Grabovski is closer to a healthy Kesler than people seem to realize. He gets minimal power play time, starts in the defensive zone a ton, and lines up against elite players. Despite this, he scores even strength points faster than Bozak (who plays sheltered minute with Kessel).

Nothing against DD, a fine player, but Grabovski is a two-way force with great hands.

Cap included, Desharnais. No cap it's closer and might lean more towards Grab

True, but Grabo does have more bite to his game. That said, that bite isn't worth 2mil per year. If Grabo was making, say, 4mil a year, I'd take him over Desharnais easily.

Hard to say. If you disregard this season where Grabovski is being misused, miscast, mishandled and having a poor year to boot, I'd go with him. But right now, it's Desharnais.

DD looks lost without Pacioretty.

Grabovski was overpaid from Day 1, so I would definitely take Desharnais..but the year Grabo was signed...guys like David Jones got 4M, so it was very likely that Grabovski would have gotten 5.5M as a UFA and the Leafs would have the WORST center depth in the league by a mile.

Grabovski is most likely trade bait right now they way Carlyle is using him. He's playing ~15 mins as a checker right now.

I think Nashville is a team that could use a guy like Grabovski. Good defensively and a 55 point center and unlike the Kostitsyn's...he's not lazy.

I like Grabovski, I just think he's floundering right now.

Pretty hefty contract but he might be worth it in the right situation.

I'm not sold on DD. Falls down a little easily sometimes.

I would take DD if they both had the same salary. He's just more consistent, IMHO. Has better vision. And I don't really see the supposed defensive value in Grabovski. It's hard for Habs fans, though, because Grabovski was such a prima donna in our org, and it's hard to get over that history with him. Desharnais definitely doesn't bring any defensive value, however, so if you really believed in Grabovski on that side of things, I could see taking him.
