It's not often that you get this kind of candor from a player, especially one who has just been bought out. Normally they trot out the whole "I enjoyed my ___ years in *insert city here* and would like to thank *insert team name* for their time." Mikhail Grabovski was bought out by the Toronto Maple Leafs, and he has taken the absolute opposite route. He didn't burn bridges here - he firebombed them.   Just got off the phone with Grabovski: "Of course I feel [expletive] sad, I played [expletive] five years here." — Jonas Siegel (@jonasTSN1050) July 4, 2013 Grabovski had some pretty blistering remarks toward Leafs coach Randy Carlyle. Called him a "stupid coach" among other things. — Jonas Siegel (@jonasTSN1050) July 4, 2013 A taste of Grabovski on Carlyle: "Don’t put me on a [expletive] third line and then [expletive] play [me] six minutes in a game." — Jonas Siegel (@jonasTSN1050) July 4, 2013 Wow. So, tell us how you really feel. Obviously angry with the way that he was utilized in Toronto, Grabovski would make some team lacking in the center department a great second-liner. Or adequate second-liner. Regardless, he's still a useful player. These statements, however, may make general managers wonder about his attitude and if that will rub off on other players. Honestly, though, if I were a GM I'd be more concerned as to whether or not he had rabies. [follow]
