Bought out by the Maple Leafs, Grabovski is still apparently looking for upwards of $5M per season, which is probably why he hasn’t signed yet.  He would be a nice fit for a team in need of a 2nd-3rd  line centre, but that price would have to come down to a $2.5-$3.5M cap hit for it to be worthwhile for his new team.  Apparently he is down to 3 teams and a decision could come down this week.
