Want either, I like Grabo a little more for a couple reasons. But I think Weiss is severely underrated but not quite the goal scorer that I think Grabo can be. Either one would be a big get and a huge answer moving forward. With Alfie and Grabo/Weiss we will be a much better hockey team by days end.

Either depending on term and cap hit.

Can't vote/ Convicted Felon.

But Grabo. Not close.
Grabo is a shooter.
Grabo can be a center on line 2. Or he can line up at Wing with Datsyuk.
Lots of one-timer goals in his highlight reels.

Also, he's younger.

I'd be fine with either. Grabo is a bit of a headcase but Weiss isn't spectacular at any one skill.

I think Grabo would give us the option of putting him as 2C or on Dats wing. And he seems more shoot first so would work good with our playmaking wingers and Dats

I think Grabovski would be a better deal, because he would be cheaper because of the buyout.

Weiss is more playmaker, Grabovski is a shooter. Babcock loves shooters.

It's really dependent on salary/term.

Couldn't choose unless I was looking at the 2 contracts. I would want Grabovski signed primarily to play wing though.

If we didn't want Flip at so much $$, why would we want Grabo? Weiss.

Grabo here too. Though I don't think Weiss is bad at all, Grabo is very talented and gets some hate due to past antics.

Both would fit in here, but Grabo should be the priority, I think.

Grabo is a warrior, he now HATES the leafs, sign him and play him with Datsyuk and make Toronto choke on it all next season.

Why have the wings abandoned signing Russians? ( Grabo isn't Russian but close...)

Whoever would sign for 3 years under 5 million is who I would want. If it is neither of them then none of them.

Pretty much this. Im a little worried about what Weiss is going to come in at for years. I dont like it if its 5 years 4 million. Would prefer 3 at 5.

If Weiss comes in at anything near 6m, Holland comes out looking like a giant hypocrite.
