Adam Kirshenblatt: The Stajan... err Bozak Negotiations

Over the last couple of days there has been a lot of discussion about the future of Tyler Bozak. The unrestricted free agent centre played on the top line with Phil Kessel throughout the year in Toronto and is looking for a big pay day due to some varying success during this past shortened season.

Toronto Maple Leafs trim Mikhail Grabovski

No, Mikhail Grabovski wasn't meeting expectations generated by his five-year, $27.5 million contract. In the seven-game playoff battle against the Bruins, he mustered just two assists and earned a minus-10 rating. Yikes! But Grabovski has good wheels, good hands and a 29-goal season to his credit in the NHL. He could be a nice free agent addition for the right team. The Toronto...
