Beleaguered Belarusian: Is Mikhail Grabovski Pushing His Luck With The Leafs?

February 24th, 2010 by Jon Neely Leave a reply »

After yet another incident involving Mikhail Grabovski of the Toronto Maple Leafs in Vancouver over the weekend, it might be time for Leafs GM Brian Burke to take a look at just how effective this seemingly troubled player is for the team.

The injured forward spoke to the media for the first time today since being arrested and then released after an alleged bar fight downtown Vancouver while watching his Belarusian men's team play. His English is limited, but he had no comment on the situation and told reporters if they had questions to ask somebody else.

Sure, that's what they'll do.

Grabovski hasn't played in a game for Team Belarus because of his ongoing recovery of a broken wrist he suffered during a Leafs game earlier in the season, thus being forced to watch the 5-3 win over Germany from a bar stool around the corner.

No word on whether the fight took place prior to the end of the game, but we're pretty sure he was aware his team won.
