Maple Leafs Acquire Mikhail Grabovski from the Canadians

Let me put on my savant hat and predict what the local scribes are going to say about the latest move by Cliff:

Who????
Can’t be a good move?
They gave up Greg Pateryn and a second-round draft pick in 2010!
The sky is falling
Bring back JFJ

Ok, so maybe I am exagerarting, no one will say bring back Ferguson.

Anyway, here is the skinny
