[Trade]Grabner to Leafs


Recommended Posts

The Toronto Maple Leafs announced today that the team has acquired forward Michael Grabner from the New York Islanders in exchange for forwards Taylor Beck and Carter Verhaeghe, defencemen Matt Finn and Tom Nilsson, and goaltender Christopher Gibson.

Grabner has skated in 317 NHL games between the Islanders and Vancouver Canucks, collecting 95 goals and 60 assists for 155 career points. Last season, he registered 13 points (8 goals, 5 assists) in 34 regular season games. The 27-year-old was selected by Vancouver in the first round (14th overall) of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.

Not really, they gave up exactly what they meant to give up.

4 contracts - they went from 49 contracts to 45 so now they have the ability to make waiver claims or PTO's.

Have you even heard of some of these names?

Beck=Bottom 6 forward

Gibson=Future Starting goalie (could step in in a year or two)

Finn=7th defenseman, future bottom pair, stay at home guy

Grabner=3rd liner at best with injury problems

It's not a big loss, but there are many other ways to get rid of contracts.
