Maple Leaf bought out, goes on tirade

Mikhail Grabovski went on a profanity-laced tirade after being bought out by the Maple Leafs on Thursday. To make matters worse, he's getting married on Friday.

Grabovski skewers Maple Leafs coach

The Toronto Maple Leafs bought out Mikhail Grabovski on Thursday, ending the center's five-year run with the team. The move gave the Leafs some financial relief under the NHL's new salary cap regulations, but whatever explanation they gave to Grabovski clearly did not sit well with the 29-year-old. Grabovski made his feelings known about Toronto head coach Randy Carlyle...

Mikhail Grabovski expletive fueled rant after getting cut by the Maple Leafs

Mikhail Grabovski has played the bulk of his relatively young NHL career with the Toronto Maple Leafs, but this past year was quite a rough year from him. After not really producing much of anything in the lockout shortened season, the organization made the decision yesterday to waive him before free agency began. The timing made organizational sense, but it sucks as a wedding gift...

Mikhail Grabovski Calls Maple Leafs Coach Randy Carlyle an ‘ Idiot’ in Profanity-Laced Rant

The Toronto Maple Leafs bought out Mikhail Grabovski on Thursday, ending the center’s five-year run with the team. The move gave the Leafs some financial relief under the NHL’s new salary cap regulations, but whatever explanation they gave to Grabovski clearly did not sit well with the 29-year-old.

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...

Nashville Predators choose not to claim Mikhail Grabovski

Prev1 of 1NextWhen the Toronto Maple Leafs put 29-year old center Mikhail Grabovski on unconditional waivers yesterday, the Predators fan base saw an opportunity. Instead of possibly swing and miss in free agency (and possibly be forced to overpay for a free agent due to multiple teams bidding for the services of the player they want), why not claim the talented Belarusian pivot...

Mikhail Grabovski vents unhappiness after being bought out by Toronto

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...

Colin Dambrauskas: Leafs to Buyout Grabovski - Should the Flames Pick Him Up?

Follow me on Twitter!: @ColinDJD The Toronto Maple Leafs will be reportedly using their 2nd compliance buyout on centerman Mikhail Grabovski. The Belarusian was signed to a 5.5M dollar contract after a few successful seasons, though current GM Dave Nonis clearly feels the contract is not warranted and is tying his hand with respect to new deals/signings. Seems as though the...

Leafs' reportedly waive Grabovski

Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mikhail Grabovski was among five NHL players placed on unconditional waivers and could have their contracts bought out, according to a person familiar with the moves. Also waived on Thursday, a day before the start of the NHL's free-agent signing period, were New Jersey goalie Johan Hedberg, Colorado defenseman Greg Zanon, Nashville defenseman Hal...

Wings show interest in Alfredsson, Grabovski

Daniel Alfredsson and Mikhail Grabovski were added to the mix of free agents linked to the Red Wings on Thursday, although nothing has really changed as far as Detroits acquisitions wish list is concerned. Stephen Weiss continues to be the Wings' top priority, as well as trying to hammer out agreements with Daniel Cleary and Damien Brunner. The Wings are also interested in...

Fake Interviews with Real People: Randy Carlyle (and special guest!)

Carlyle’s Team

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, Randy Carlyle didn’t say a word Friday. He didn’t have to. But less than 82 games into his time as coach of the Maple Leafs, one thing has been made apparent: Carlyle’s fingerprints are all over the off-season moves being made by general manager Dave Nonis. This is his team now. The players he didn’t have much use for ...
