Yuri Grabovski talks about son's lockout plans

Quote:
In one of the breaks in the lobby of the arena met Father Michael Grabowski - Yuri Alexandrovich:

- I'm fan! I am no expert! - Has become excuses Grabowski Sr. from the conversation.

- Yes specialists we do not need! As you are opening the season?

- It's great and solemn. Not far behind "Dynamo" in this respect from the NHL - I have something to compare with. Unfortunately, this year the opening of the season, "overseas" are unlikely to see because of the events - Yuri hints at lockout.

- Yes, as long as the disappointing news. By the way, where is Michael?

- In Toronto. Prepares to leave the locker room, close the door. All sad. Simply close the locker room and the players say, "Go, go in, practice."

- Maybe Mike talked about what they think about the players themselves this whole situation?

- Specifically on the topic did not communicate. But do not think that the mood of the players is good. Misha is at a crossroads, do not know what to do. Play around to form support? And if the lockout will not longer? For a month break away point is no more. And reliably no one knows anything. Everyone is in a wait state. 15th it should be resolved.

- And if the lockout will last a long time, which would like to see my son?

- Of course, at home. The native "Youth." But Mikhail said Misha there is nothing to do now . But seriously, I am opposed to all these short pobyvok. We all remember what happened in the period of the lockout with the "Ak Bars": stars collected, and the result was not. Now the interests of the team come to the fore. Not aware of all the details of the negotiations with any club of Michael. I know that his son is interested in Minsk "Dynamo". But there is Vladimir Krikunov, to whom we owe almost everything in this life - the emergence of Michael. I have heard that he is also interested in Misha, but no details to tell you I can not. All questions are decided by the agent.
Original Russian text: http://telegraf.by/2012/09/ne-otstaet-dinamo-ot-nhl

The gist: Grabovski would like to play for Minsk or for Krikunov, who is the head coach of Barys Astana.

Yeah it is. If anyone is taking any second language classes, this translation is a perfect example of why you don't use Google Translate to write your essays.

I checked the original text in Russian. Well... one answer was really confusing like this translation. The rest - just bad translation and miss of the context.

In general, answers are quite vague (just a quick interview between two periods during Dynamo Minsk game): players in Toronto are bit depressed now; Michael won't play for his native club "Youth" (my remark: it's not even KHL); there are couple of options - one for KHL Dynamo Minsk Belarus (my remark: only if they get side financing from weak local business, because main club income is support from the state industries, they will be reluctant to spend state money) another possible option is KHL Barys Astana Kazakhstan. No Russian clubs mentioned even. If lockout is just till December it might not make sense to move anywhere.

You may not like him, that's fine, but in no situation would losing our best centre make us a better team.

Huh? That's exactly where this translation comes from. I clicked the link with google chrome, asked it to translate, and it came up with the quoted text.

Also, I wasn't criticizing the OP, just the google translation. It's pretty much gibberish.

If only we still had Jonas Hoglund. We were a top-four team in the Conference with him.

You still haven't provided any proof or reasoning why the team would be better without Grabo. You're just repeating yourself.

It's an educated summation, based on watching him for 4 years. Besides I have posted enough on him this summer that I don't need to repeat myself. He is a marginal player on this team compared to Lupul, Dion, and Kessel. When these guys go, the Leafs go. Grabo at 5.5 the highest paid fwd on this team, thus one should conclude is a core player, a player on this team that has not gotten this team to be better than a 21st place finish with 2 top 5 pick finishes.

Just do me a favour, when Grabo is traded and the Leafs suddenly become a better team. Remember this post and do not insult my intelligence by saying it has nothing to do with Grabo, since his 5.5M salary is being paid as a core player is taking up a roster spot from a core player that can truly make a difference.

The evidence will be in wins and losses, and I will wager the Leafs will have more wins without Grabo than with him on the roster.

Interactif, I'm having a little trouble following your line of thinking here. It seems a little hollow to me The leafs will be better without grabo? When? When prospects reach the NHL and are able to out perform him? Well, yea thanks for the insight. That pretty much common sense.

From what I understand, your banking on Kadri, Colborne replacing him?

Let's let them make the NHL before we start talking about replacement here. Grabo is our most consistently performing c we have right now. For he foreseeable future, he should remain a Leaf. If Garbo is moved it should be in a package for a number one C. As it stands now, Bozak could replace his production and contributions, but no one else. I agree that he will eventually be moved, before his contract expires, but not until the twilight of the contract. And not until there is a clear and away upgrade for both the 1 and 2 C positions.

Are you advocating trading him now, and letting a kid run with he 2c job? That would be wildy irreponsible management. There are ko gauranteed prospects and neiter Kadri or Colborne has shown enough to warrant replacing Grabo for the forseeable future. Let's wait until they EARN there jobs. Of course the young guys are for the future, that's why we have them, but let's not pretend like they will step in and replace grabo, or even improve upon him. Playing the kids WILL make the leafs worse. Next season, whenever t happens, will be a write of of we play the kids as your stating. It will be another losing season. At the 60 game mark, we were comfortably on a PO position. Grabo was a big part of that. Then the wheels fell off for absolutely everyone. The blame canny be places on any one individual, and replacing one proven individual with an unproven individual, the results will not be different. as much as you like to think the young guys will just step on and everything will be hunky dorky without growing pains, there will be many. Yes I agree Grabo is just a place holder until prospects come along, but just plying the kids will not make us a better team next season or even be season after.

We need an upgrade at our number one center and number 2 if we are going to compete.

We also need an upgrade in our top pairing D-man.

Lastly we need to have a true number one goalie.

If we can combine all the upgrades and find some leadership and grit we may have a team capable of competing for the cup.

Grabo is not a number 2 center on a team that will compete for the cup.

Here are the players I would keep moving forward:

Kessel
Gardiner
JVR ( at least until he proves that he is not a top six forward)
Kadri ( at least until he proves that he is not a top six forward)

There are also some untouchable prospects as well.

All others can be moved for upgrades or in some cases for what ever we can get for them.

I left Dion off the list of players I would keep because currently he is hurting the Leafs with his piss poor attitude towards some of his team mates.
