Looking Back: The Mikhail Grabovski Trade

Mikhail Grabovski beats some nobody to the puck

Mikhail Grabovski was acquired from Montreal for a 2nd round pick and Greg Pateryn. Montreal traded that pick to Chicago for 59 games of Robert Lang and Greg Pateryn doesn't look like much. That Mikhail Grabovski has played 178 games with the Toronto Maple Leafs is enough to say Cliff Fletcher won that trade but I'd like to point something else out:

GP G A Pts
GRABOVSKI 41 17 17 34
PLEKANEC 42 12 21 33
CAMMALLERI 41 12 16 28
GIONTA 43 15 9 24
KOSTITSYN 42 10 13 23
GOMEZ 41 6 16 22

Grabovski is also the only player on that list with a cap hit under $3,000,000.00 and is the only player to have viciously attacked a piece of fresh fruit with malicious intent.
