New York Islanders Daily Links: Grabovski’s Injuries
A look around the web at the most recent New York Islanders news. Make Eyes On Isles your go to website for all things Islanders.
Mikhail Grabovski’s tenure with the New York Islanders has been riddled with injuries. He may not be fully ready to go at the start of the 2016-2017 season, which means the Islanders can’t buy him out because he’s still hurt.
Brian Erni writes that early in the week SNY blogger Andy Graziano reported that the Islanders are trying to move Grabovski to rid themselves of his $5 million cap hit.
Which now, if he wouldn’t be fully recovered at the start of the season, may hurt their chances of trading Grabo. He’s shown flashes of talent with the Islanders so far, but has really been set back with concussions.
We took a look at Grabovski’s positives, which is his strong possession game. Although the question is, is it worth the $5 million cap hit for a guy who has a good possession game and has been underwhelming in scoring?
That’s up to Garth Snow and company to decide.
