Mikhail Grabovski is getting married today. That’s exciting! Yesterday, Mikhail Grabovski was placed on waivers by the Toronto Maple Leafs. That sucks. Grabovski, who has been with the Leafs since 2008, had 4-years and $27.5 million remaining on his contract. Grabovski went on TSN Radio to talk about the move and he did not seem happy, calling coach Randy Carlyle a “f—ing idiot.”

Audio was played on SportsCenter’s Canadian cousin so we get to hear it. The Toronto Star transcribed the (expletive) rant:

“Of course I feel (expletive) sad . . . I played (expletive) five years here. I’m supposed to feel upset about that. I loved it (here). . . . Toronto fans are the best fans in the world.”

“I play in the (expletive) KHK, I make lots of ( expletive) points and what’s going to happen. . . . He (Carlyle) makes me (expletive) play on the fourth line and he put me in the playoffs on the fourth line and third line again,” Grabovski told TSN.

“Yeah, I don’t score goals. I need to work more about that. I know that. But if you feel support from your coach . . . I don’t feel any support from this (expletive) idiot.”

Man, the wedding reception should be interesting.
