Grabovski Named First Star Of the Week

NEW YORK -- Toronto Maple Leafs centre Mikhail Grabovski has been named the NHL's first star of the week for the three-day stretch prior to the all-star break.

Grabovski had a league-leading five points (one goal, four assists) in Toronto's consecutive wins over the New York Islanders.

The 27-year-old had in assist in the Maple Leafs' 3-0 home win against the Isles on Jan. 23 before adding a goal an three assists in a 4-3 overtime victory a day later.

Second star honours went to Nashville's Pekka Rinne. The Predators goaltender extended his personal win streak to nine games with two victories. The 29-year-old had a 1.00 goals-against average and .961 save percentage in wins over Columbus and Chicago.

I can't see the Leafs parting with Grabovski for a struggling player like Stastny or Carter.

You need consistency right now if you plan to go for the playoffs. They can't afford to go for a player that hasn't been producing anywhere near Grabovski's level.

Good for him. Love his tenacity. He had a slow start last year too and heated up in the 2nd half if I recall correctly. Hopefully he duplicates his performance and finally hits that 30 goal mark this year.

having center depth in the playoffs is very important trading grabo + + for a winger does not make sense to me...

This. I don't think people genuinely appreciate that most of our secondary scoring is in direct correlation with the play of Grabovski. Sure, package him to get a #1 center - goodbye secondary scoring.

Congrats to him. He had a great stretch before the ASG break. Hopefully he keeps it up.

No its not.

A lot of Leafs should be traded before Grabs.

It's amazing what one great game can do when there are only 3 nights of games in a week with a lot of teams having only played one game. Either way, great game by Grabo on Tuesday night, hopefully he'll start producing more consistantly now.

Grats for Grabo, we need him to perform more like that week if we want to win games.
