Seems caps are going with laich at 2c. Though you never know with gmgm. Only would take grabo on a 1 or 2 year deal at reduced cost.

Probably not Washington but Anaheim makes sense. As does WPG or, I think, FLA. I think the value and term you've got there is about right though.

Laich is the Caps 2C now, so you can rule out WSH.

The cap really prevents the Caps from doing that. Way too much risk with Alzner still on the open market.

I wouldn't offer him more than 2.5 if I were a team that wanted his services, only Burke would give him 5.5M. Clearly he is not worth half of that based on his last 2 seasons and even his best season of 58 points he is not David Krejci.

Only fits are weak teams, he's not a #2C on a good team, and his fans say he is misused as a #3C. So unless a crappy team wants him, he's going to have to move to wing or accept a role with a bad team. grabo is a #2C on bad teams, I said this last year, and am reiterating this again this year.

Meh. With the time allowance to match and the ability to go 10% over the cap in the off-season, the Caps could easily sign Grabo to that contract without fear of Alzner being snatched up. Granted, they would have to make another move (trading one or more of Ward, Neuvirth, or Chimera) to clear the cap space, but it's doable.

Whether McPhee is even interested is the bigger question.

Washington GM McPhee said he's done shopping...

I can see Anaheim or Winnipeg with Grabovski

He should go to Florida so he can play the Leafs six times a year.

Think he goes the KHL route, then returns next season or halfway through this one.

I could see Winnipeg as well. As long as he signs cheap. Best case we have about $5 million left after signing RFAs.

i dont see a team risking $4M+ on him on a long term contractr.

I think he signs a 1-2 yr $3.0M-$3.75M per year contract to prove himself.

if a team was to offer a 4 yr/$4M per contract then why not just trade for him from toronto for a 7th and have toronto eat the $1.5M cap hit?

I could really see him leaving for the KHL. Wouldn't blame him.

This thread is for speculation on Grabovski's future destination. It is not meant for fans to merely bicker back and forth with one another. Keep it on topic.

Highly, highly doubt that. He has laid roots here in Canada, loves the NHL, and I can assure you, his bride doesnt believe that to be true. If I were a betting man, he goes to Anaheim, under the suggestion of Grabo's old GM.

Something like 2 years 4.5 per to Winnipeg would make lot of sense

Apparently not.

Quote:
"Hes going to stay here, hes not going back to the KHL," said agent Gary Greenstin. "He wants to win a Stanley Cup. Toronto is a nice spot and he played with great respect for the fans. He wants to come back to that place (the Air Canada Centre) and a score a goal against the Leafs. That would be really fun." According to Greenstin, Grabovski is fielding multiple offers and will make a decision about his future soon.

Good Player but 5 mil is a stretch.

2 year deal at 4 million per would be about right IMO.

Wouldn't mind if the Ducks signed him to a 3 year, $12M contract. That would be the max I would offer, though.
