Perhaps room will be made for him in the coming days. I wouldn't be surprised with that either. Ottawa ha 14m to spend on whatever they feel like though, must be nice.
If Ken Holland truly wants him he will find the way to clear cap, We have tons of options I would be surprised that he wont trade Quincey for an upgrade at defence plus Tootoo, Emmertom and Eaves are more then likely on the move as well and if needed we can LTIR Sammy or Bert rumor is that he would love to play for Detroit and he will be living not to far from there and Ken Holland still says that he's an option so we shall see with his buyout i still think he could be a cheap option. I would'nt be surprised if he does'nt sign for $3.5m-$4.0m at the most on a 4 year deal.

Yeah I'm sure there's nothing more that would bring him pleasure but to be able to seek revenge on a daily basis against his former team.

I would think the KHL would have to be a serious option as well.

He is a man of extreme pride, it's all he is about battle family make my kids proud so if you get him now he will be 110% in for it. Should be great games, most of the games I used to go see were Toronto vs Detroit and will be nice to get the chance to see my two fav teams battle again.

Still hoping he comes to DC, but it could definitely be another day or 2 before we see a signing anywhere. He's in demand and already has a paycheck. Wedding/honeymoon logically has priority.

We don't really have the money, but it would be awesome if he came to the Panthers. Guranteed 1C for us, and he'd be division rivals with Toronto too.

The Leafs who have ALWAYS had a dearth of centres, got rid of their best one

*stupid, stupid, stupid*

Liles would've been far better to buy out, but its obvious RC and Grabs, never communicated.

Kadri>Grabovski
Bolland, McClement(for their salary, the line they play on)>Grabovski
Bozak=Grabovski(Grabo might have a bit more talent but if he doesn't mesh with anyone in the top 6 what's the point of paying him)

I really hope he finds a team in the East so he prove to Nonis and Carlyle they were wrong to buy him out without giving a chance to prove his contract in a full 82 season (although I sorta like the fact they freed up cap space to re-sign Bozak).

It would appear this may be the case with Carlyle and all those from that region of the world. It appears that way and honestly, I don't think many will argue against me saying that.

Perhaps I am totally wrong, I don't know.

I am not looking forward to him playing for another team. Grabo is my favorite player, and its almost a guarantee that when he plays the Leafs, he is going to light the Leafs up badly

i Definitely expect this to be Grabovskis best year. Dude is going to be mad as **** all season @ toronto. MTL vs Toronto games were fun in his first couple years with the leafs.


He's definitely going to want to prove he was worth the contract

I agree. Grabo is a competitor. I see Anaheim as the best fit for grabovski.

The people's reaction to Nonis decisions. I bring you Nonis vs A Potato (Potato winning poll 5:1 as better GM)

He's looking for a top six ( 2nd line center ) roll I would assume after hearing him sound of on coach RC after the buyout. He feels he's at least a 2nd line center. In San Jose the top two center positions are filled. Don't see him signing with the sharks.

I think Grabovski and Roy are the two #2 centers that teams like San Jose, Florida, and Washington are targetting. I predict Roy will end up in Anaheim, and Grabovski in Florida.

Pretty sure he said he wanted to stay in the NHL. You never know though I guess right.

good guesses. WSH needs a C bad though so maybe there too.

FLA seems to be going with kids but of course could use an offensive talent

Pretty sure his stupid rant scared teams off. If he wants the $$$ he'll have to wait for a bit for a team to bite.
