Mikhail Grabovski signs with Washington [1 year/$3 million] MOD warning post 352

Daniel Friedman ‏@DFriedmanWFAN 3m
Looks like Mikhail Grabovski will sign with #Caps. Awaiting confirmation.

Igor Eronko ‏@IgorEronko 18m
Belarus TV-channel ONT reports Mikhail Grabovski will sign contract with #Caps today

Should be a great signing.

Seems like a good fit, and they probably got him for a great price.

Good player for the Caps after Ribs walked, what the terms are and how he does will determine whether or not it's a good signing.

The first part, agreed. Very nice? How will we know until we see the contract?

Steal of the market, was so sad he left. My fav leafs player, nothing but good things to say. All heart and soul, 100% effort every game. (Excpet the recent leafs games where he was treated like crap by Carlyle)

4.5 M for 5 years would be my prediction.

Well, then. I guess they might actually have a chance of getting somewhere.

I really don't think we're going to see a multi-year deal here. Gonna want a one-year, cheap contract to wait for the cap to go up and get a better $ deal after that.

It definitely seems like a good fit, the Caps needed to replace Ribiero. Interested like everyone else with the contract details.

Fantastic, great for Grabo and the Caps. He is a solid player if he. Is put in a situation where he doesn't have rely heavily on defence and checking role.

Wish we had kept him over even if it meant buying out Liles.

Anything under $5 mil is a good price.

I don't think this is 100% confirmed yet. Especially given that Friedman even said "awaiting confirmation." Title should be changed to rumor.

@SWhyno: Mikhail Grabovski's agent says client still making a decision. @IgorEronko reports Belarus TV says #Caps will sign him.

@SWhyno: Grabovski's agent says he hopes to have resolution by weekend or shortly after. Short-term deal has always been preference.


Whyno is a former Caps beat writer.

You're gonna love him in Washington. For a 'skill' guy, he plays with a lot of heart and usually saves his best for big games against divisional rivals.

So what is Washington's center depth with this signing?

Do they still have Ribeiro?

Yeah.

I think we'll see a 1 year deal in the 1.5-2M range.
