With Mason Raymond's emergence, with our lineup, it would have been very difficult for Michael to get in. If Mason continues to advance and gets into the 30-goal category, our third line can't be constituted with guys who are goal scoring players. We were fortunate to have that kind of redundancy so we could look at trade like this. Grabner is a really good player with big upside. But you're not going to get an NHL defenceman without giving up a player like that.

Mike Gillis on letting go of Michael Grabner. Botchford from the Province talked to our GM after the 1st round of the draft.
