from Mike Zeisberger of the Toronto Sun,
As Grabovski’s Maple Leafs and the defending Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins were doing battle on their first shift, a whopping 2,649 respondents had answered the torontosun.com poll question: Did the Leafs overpay for Mikhail Grabovski.
In the end, an overwhelming 1,754 of you claimed general manager Brian Burke was too generous in locking up Grabovski to a five-year, $27.5-million US deal, a pact that was announced by the team Tuesday morning (sans $ figures, of course).
There were, on the other hand, a significant number of you who were in Grabovski’s corner. In fact, 895 voters thought the speedy Maple Leafs centre received market value for his new deal.
When you break down those numbers, 66% of those who took part in our survey felt the Leafs overpaid for Grabovski, who is now locked up through 2017. The other 34% supported the move, at least from a financial standpoint.
