The Toronto Maple Leafs are apparently breaking up with Mikhail Grabovski. According to several sources, including Sportsnet's Chris Johnston, the Leafs have placed Grabovski on unconditional waivers with the intention of using their second compliance buyout (he may not clear waivers, mind you). The 29-year-old carried an annual salary cap-hit of $5.5 million until 2016-17. Now the center is pegged to become an unrestricted free agent Friday (his wedding date, incidentally).
