Teams with capspace may take a chance with him, I can see Anaheim maybe as one of those teams. Honeymoon or not, it's easy to talk to your agent via text so perhaps the offers are not as forthcoming as one believes.

He will land somewhere, I bet it's an offensive team, he's not the best defensively structured player so if it were a defensive team, I would not want to sign with them if I were Grabo.

My Q: Will you likely sign in Washington? Grabo: "Why not?" But wouldn't on the record confirm he is negotiating with the #Caps.

Would love to get him on the Canucks but can't see us having the cap space. A good two way player who was just overpaid on the Leafs.

Don't think it means much tbh. I'd think he'd be open to playing just about anywhere. Not sure he brings more to the table than Laich in all honesty.

I am now hearing from people I know that work for Monumental Network that George McPhee has contacted Gary Greenstin (Grabovski Agent) today. Which makes sense still need to add at center weather Brooks is 2nd line center or not and with Alzner signing for little less then mostly everyone thought leaves little more cash on table. Hearing Mojo could be sign within next week will get 2 or 3 year deal with at most 2 mill AAV. So though nothing official sounds like McPhee still looking to add.

So he's going to sign in Washington and play on the third line again? After that profanity laced tirade and his agents comments that he was misused, I would find it hard to believe.

Would think Laich would probably slide to the wing since Perreault did a pretty good job as the 3rd line C (not a traditional checking line the way the caps play).

Have to think lines be Johansson-Backstrom-Ovechkin, Erat-Grabovski-Brouwer, Laich-Perreault-Ward or Fehr, Chimera-Beagle-Ward or Fehr. All this again like forum says is "speculations" of unofficial reports. Even if my friend is telling the truth it's still just talks no agreements to contracts or anything. But, it's clearly McPhee has little extra money then most believe so would not surprise me if he does add a center or left-handed defensemen.

He'd be such a perfect fit in Anaheim I find it hard to believe Murray can't see that and isn't pushing hard.

He can come to VAN at $2m for as many years as he wants.

Sedin - Sedin - Kassian
Burrows - Kesler - Higgins (checking line)
Booth - Grabovski - Hansen

He's way too good to be playing at $2 mill lol, there was a reason leafs fans weren't so pissed off about the 5.5 contract till this season, carlyle is just an idiot who ruined my favourite player

He's EXACTLY what the Ducks need and that's EXACTLY the reason we won't get him.

Not a stab at Bob Murray, it's just how things go. Bob has done well, but sometimes the team he is building doesn't make sense to me.

You don put a player who makes $4.5 million per on a 3rd line and you don't put a player making $3 million per on a 4th line, unless either player is getting demoted, which they are not.

2A is your offensive scoring line, 2B is your shutdown line.

Tlusty-Staal-Semin
Skinner-Grabovski-kid (Dalpe? Rask? somebody's gotta earn that spot)
Ruutu-Staal-Lindholm
Welsh-Nash-Dwyer

Haha. Never heard of a 2A and a 2B line. Interesting. By no means though is Carolina a "perfect fit".

This is the Washington Capitals, we have a grossly overpaid bottom 6 In any way and Joel Ward will be on the 4th line. You wouldn't have him the top 6 in any way and Fehr is better than him. Lines of;

Johansson/Backstrom/Ovechkin
Erat/Grabovski/Brouwer
Laich/Perrault/Fehr
Chimera/Volpatti/Ward

With Laich getting PP time works
