What should Crosbovski get on the open market?

Considering the madness that went down last summer (LOLeino), what will a guy like Mikhail Grabovski get on the open market?

I could see Burke going w/ 4 yrs, 20 million. But I honestly believe Crosbovski could grab 5 over 5 in all the madness that is July 1st.

Somebody will overpay for him. I'm sure he'll get at least what Laich and Leino got.

I should hope so. He's about to break 20 goals for the third time in his career. Leino hasn't even done that once.

What a terrible contract Leino has. Buffalo sure did burn a hole in their pocket when they got the money from Pegula.

5+

I hope he'll take a discount for the Leafs. He married a Canadian girl, has two kids here, loves the city.

Hes a hell of a player who plays hard every night. Ideal #2C on most teams.

Due to that stupid contract inflating the market price, Grabovski has every right to demand 5 mil per yr this summer.

Saw something, might have been on the Leafs board here or, another board I frequent where someone on the team said "we'll get it done" in regards to a contract for Crosbovski.

Actually, it was Adam Proteau on Twitter...

Buffalo will give him 6. They'll hit on one of these and buy the rest out while the cap goes up.

On the open market, I'm sure he could get a bit over 5 million. I'm hopeful he stays a Leaf for a million less.

4-5 pretty easily

If Leino can get what he got... Grabovski will sucker someone into paying him 4.75

I think 3.75-4.25 is fair market value and should re-sign in Toronto for that amount.

What should he get and what will he get are two different poll questions.

Does he want to go? Grabo said he only wants to be in Toronto or Colorado.

Avs fans...

Hope we re-sign him. However if he hits the open market I'd say he's a lock for 5+ million. Hopefully he will take a discount to stay.

Hoping Toronto signs him for 4mil ish with a limited no trade clause for like 5 years. He is the perfect 2nd line center for our team.

I'd be nice for him to stay living in Toronto with his girlfriend/daughter.

So who's Crosbovski? If we are talking about some hybrid between Crosby and Grabovski, then he should get a fortune.

Exactly, but he'll sign for a discount because he likes the city.

There is no way he signs in TO for a discount, that's for sure. I'd say 4-5 million. I think he's worth the bottom end of that, possibly a little less, but he's good enough that some dumb GM will go a million a year higher.

I think he'll be looking for term and that's why he won't sign in TO. Someone will give him 6 years.

I don't think he's the type of player that would relax after signing for big money. He plays hard every shift. But he is the type that will start to break down at 30 yo due to wear and tear.

True. He's kind of strange. For fans that don't know about this aspect:

Grabovski doesn't give a crap about getting rocked, he'll cut through the middle with his head down, he'll go into the boards first against Chara and anyone else. And he has even said that he likes to get hit hard because it gets him in the 'zone'.
