This afternoon, it was announced that the Islanders signed Mikhail Grabovski to a 4 year contract worth 5 million per season.
Last season for the Capitals in 58 games, Grabovski had 13 goals and 22 assists. Grabovski had to wait a while for a contract last season after getting a bad reputation after leaving Toronto. However, he seemed to put the concerning issues behind him last season in his time with the Capitals. His play making ability as well as his skating are some things that draw rave reviews from people when critiquing his game. Grabovski also gives the Islanders valuable versatility being able to play both center and wing.
It is nice to be talking about this rather then what we thought we would be talking about last night. Grabovski has shown potential to be a solid offensive player and placed in the right situation he could be a very solid pickup for the Islanders.
