YES GRABO. The guys amazing. DId you see how they treated him last year?
HE was playing on their 3rd line most of the time. He was consistently a force against Boston. He plays his game no matter who the opponent. 
-coming from a TML fan, I wouldn't want him to leave.

Uh, I dunno where all this soft Euro crap came from, but I watched every post-season game the Leafs played this year and I noticed Grabo every single shift he played. I can't speak for his regular season, but in the playoffs he took a SERIOUS amount of abuse and kept getting back up. He was always buzzing around the net, going to the hard areas. I would take him over Weiss or Matt Cullen for sure. I'd cough up 4.0-4.5 per for Grabo. Big fan of what I watched, though it is a small sample size.

Same here. Grabovski plays hard. Floating around it not what he is known for. I would be more concerned with his durability given how recklessly he plays sometimes.

Agreed.

 

Many here, and in general non-Maple Leafs fans will bash anything outta Toronto...The fact is - Garbo is a very good player.

We have 7 centres without Flip and Cleary, who are both centers. WTF are we looking at another centre fod?

 

Z, Dats, Helm, Anderson, Emmerton makes 5.  They want Dats to play on the same line as Z.  Emmerton is waiver material.

Franzen can play there in a pinch makes 6, but is a winger.  Abdelkader has played there, and is just terrible up the middle -because he is also a winger.

If you're going to class Cleary as a centre....WTF?    Why do you just keep making random stuff up?


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

So good, they nicknamed him after a silent film legend.

Was that a French film?

 

On a serious note - he could very well be the best value out there in what's left of the UFA (once he clears waivers of course).

No, Garbo was Swedish.  Maybe we should sign him then.   :tounge:

Another over 35 year old guy who the Wings are interested in?

Grabo kind of reminds me of when Semin was available and had the floater reputation. If we could get him for under 4, I bet he would flourish with Pavel. The risk is small and the reward is great!

Holland needs to f*** off with these over the hill signings. Let the calder cup mvp have a shot! We dont need bandaids anymore lets develop a solution for the future even if there are a few growing pains.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Floater? Grabo does not float around... he competes every single shift. He had an off year this season, but if you watched him he competes regularly. Even in the playoffs, while he was getting knocked around he continued to get up and compete. He does NOT float around like Semin. Also, he is a very good friend of Pavs, so hopefully Pavs can talk him and Kenny into some sort of an agreement because he would be a great fit here

Would love to have Grabo in the winged wheel. Would be a perfect fit for our system. And the guy plays well defensively too! He played on Pavel's line in the KHL and they had really good chemistry together. Seriously please Kenny sign this guy!

Under Wilson, he was a 20 goal scorer ... we can't revive him?

Grabovski is NOT a floater. His numbers were really down last season, but he was basically playing as the Leafs' shutdown center (most of his faceoff starts were in the defensive zone too). From what I've seen of him, he really competes though and doesn't back down. A lot feister than Filppula for sure.

 

Hopefully Datsyuk is enough reason for him to come here at around $4M (they were teammates during the lockout).

I think he scores 30 on Pav's wing.

 

Would be awesome for him to sign with us and we beat the Leafs all year.

Let's do it then ... make a Russian pairing of Dats and Grabo
