In a curious decision, a little over a year after signing him to a 5 year contract, at 5.5 million dollars on March 6th, 2012, the Leafs are going to be using their second compliance buyout on Mikhail Grabovski. With Tyler Bozak hopefully not resigning in Toronto, Toronto has only Kadri in their top 2 center slots. This almost certainly signals a trade of some sort, or Dave Nonis is making a very, very bad decision by buying out a very good player so that he can bring back an average player.

Here’s to hoping that this signals a trade for a legit 1C that fits the age group of the Leafs. Tomorrow is going to be interesting.
