I didn't have a problem with re-signing Jones this summer, and I'm happy that the Oilers management have the balls to put him on waivers when he's clearly been sub-par.

As far as Acton & Hamilton go, which center has been better than Acton thus far for the 4th line spot? Were there any wingers that deserved a spot more than Hamilton? Only one that comes to mind is Pitlick.

We're going to hear a lot of that if Grabovski starts lighting it up in Washington. Three assists last night ... and if he gets PP time he could make the Caps look really smart. I was not in favor of bringing him to Edmonton because of his known attitude problems and the fact that he so small he's smaller than most of the shrimps we already have.

Not an Eakins player this Grabo.... couldve been an options if we planned on flipping Gagner for s DMan when he was still RFA..

No you shouldn't, unless your talent is better, see Hall and the Nuge down the middle. Grabovski didn't "see" himself as a 3rd line center in Toronto, why the hell would want to be one in Edmonton?

I don't disagree, and like another poster has already said, if we had known Gagner was going to miss two months on top of the RNH absence, then yeah signing up Grabovski would have been the thing to do. Realistically nobody expects to lose their top two centers, and Grabovski is more of what we already have, I think MacT made the right call passing on this guy given what he knew then about his roster. Besides, we don't know for sure that he even wanted to come to Edmonton.

I guess we'll see, he does have some talent as you say.

I'm not one of the posters who goes on and on about size on the roster, but anyone can look at our forwards and see that we don't need another center who weights 185.

We have no shortage of talent. In such case one shouldn't ignore bad attitude.

Lets keep this real as well. The same club that figures Grabs is a great player has a longtime hire famous for his backcheck attention to detail in the playoffs.

Translation:

Washington Capitals led by players that don't give a flying **** about GA and never will. just get me the goals and the $ and don't ask questions..

Hall was NOT going to be a center until these injuries. Grabs was a center from day one thus you can't toss Hall into this discussion at all.

Well we had Nuge and Gagner down the middle before injuries... RNH wasnt suppose to miss too much of the season... worst case 1 month.. Like I said Grabovski was not needed here unless we were going to trade away Gagner for a top 4 Dman.

Jones is garbage and grebeshkov as much as I like the guy looks like he won't even dress half the time, we have the worst centre depth in the league and right now we are without our top two centres for all of October

He was the leafs best 200' player, he faced their hardest competition, and he did it with his head above water for the most part. But Carlyle didn't like him for some reason.

Yeah, when Grabovski called MacT and said "Hey, Curly, how about a deal?" we certainly should have said yes.

Good. I hope he plays well for OKC and earns a call up when injuries hit the bottom 6.

Edit: And if you guys want to keep talking about Grabovski please take it to the rumour/proposal thread. It is off topic in this thread.
