Simple, title says it all. Pease I want neutral and honest fans take in this, not the same Leafs/Habs/Bruins/Canucks/Flames/Jets/Oilers/Sabres etc that will result in a fanbase wars and so on.

Slight overpayment, but that is to be expected. Welcome to the world of UFA signings.

500k Id say but as stated above, welcome to todays free agent market. Still a solid player and a solid 2nd line center costs about 5 mil in todays world.

I don't think he's overpaid. It's a pretty fair contract. Far from a steal, but far from being overpaid.

Worth every penny, in fact Leafs should have paid him more. Should have made this an underpaid poll.

Would have been fair to add the option that he is not overpaid.

Just to put this deal into context, Grabovski is 23 in centre scoring while playing less games than everyone but Malkin, Toews and Ribeiro. Of the 22 players ahead of him in centre scoring, only Filppula, Jokinen, Bergeron (barely), Couture (ELC), Seguin (ELC), Desharnais (ELC), O'Reilly (ELC), Ribeiro (Barely), Krejci (Barely), and Weiss have a lower cap hit.

Of those players, Bergeron, Krejci, Couture, Seguin and O'Reilly are the only players i favour over Grabovski. He is slightly over paid but not to a significant amount that it'll hinder the Leafs from any other deals.

Not to mention Hemsky just recently signed a 5 mill and Ruttu 4.75 mil and i take Grabo over both.

Some would say he's not overpaid at all given what similar players are signing for the past year or 2.

Slight overpayment, but I'll overpay for Grabo's services.

Look at what UFAs have been signing for and how high the cap has gone. It's not an overpayment.

If you play in Detroit or Vancouver that's what a similar player would make. For a team entering their seventh year out of the playoffs you have to pay a premium.

I guess when you look at it that way... I wouldn't want him on Chicago for anything more than 4

Didn't mean to offend you Bro, i guess he is worth more to the leafs than 3.75-4.25 i just don't think he's worth more than that.

Should have got 4.5 IMO, but I told you that I know Grabo's cousin and that he said he was only staying if he got 5 or more
