Only hours after his five-year tenure in Toronto had come to an end, Mikhail Grabovski was still trying to sort out the emotions of what had just occurred. "Im [expletive] happy right now," he told TSN.ca exclusively early on Thursday evening, shortly after the Maple Leafs announced that they had exercised their second compliance buyout on the 29-year-old. With the sting of the wound being realized, Grabovski changed tune considerably in a frustrating diatribe that took aim most poignantly at Leafs head coach Randy Carlyle. "Of course I feel [expletive] sad," he continued in a lengthy conversation, minutes later, "I played [expletive] five years here. Im supposed to feel upset about that. I loved it [here]. Toronto fans are one of the best fans in the world." Grabovski finished a disappointing and altogether uninspired 2013 with poor numbers, compiling just nine goals and 16 points in 48 games, used almost exclusively in a checking role under Carlyle. While he performed with renewed fire and urgency in the playoffs, Grabovski ultimately finished goalless against the Bruins, adding just two assists in seven games. Unwilling to rock the boat throughout the season, which saw the Leafs reach the playoffs for the first time since 2004, Grabovski kept silent, but held nothing back in his feelings toward Carlyle after ties with the organization were effectively cut. "I play in the [expletive] Russian KHL, I make lots of [expletive] points and whats going to happen? He make me [expletive] play on the fourth line and he put me in the playoffs on the fourth line and third line again," Grabovski spewed. "Yeah, I dont score goals. I need to work more about that. I know that. But if you feel support from your coach [youll find success]. I dont feel any support from this [expletive] idiot." Grabovski found a favourite in Ron Wilson, from whom Carlyle took over in the latter stages of the 2011-2012 season, scoring 20 goals three times upon being acquired from Montreal. Inked to a hefty five-year, $27.5 million extension just three days after Wilson was fired in March of 2012, Grabovski never found a similar connection or rapport with Carlyle. Communication – or lack thereof – was in some ways at the crux of the matter. Grabovski and the head coach rarely spoke, most of the conversation instead streaming through assistant coaches Greg Cronin and Scott Gordon. "Wilson [expletive] pushed me same hard as this," Grabovski said, months of frustration finally bubbling to the surface, "but dont be an [expletive] with me. If you dont like something tell [expletive] right away, dont put me on the bench, healthy scratch [me] or something. Dont put me on a [expletive] third line and then [expletive] play me six minutes in a game." Due to be married to his long-time girlfriend on Friday, the news unquestionably took Grabovski by surprise. Initially he called the buyout – which will offer the Leafs a boost in cap space with free agency looming on Friday – a "good present" from the organization and looked ahead to the opportunity he would find elsewhere. He added that hed find motivation from the dismissal, just as he had upon being traded from the Canadiens five years – almost to the day – earlier. "People always in life motivate me," he said. According to Leafs general manager Dave Nonis, the Leafs desired "cap flexibility" in parting ways with Grabovski and ultimately they chose that flexibility – be it with Tyler Bozak, Stephen Weiss or whomover they manage to acquire – over Grabovski. After buying out Mike Komisarek a day earlier, the organization projects to have upwards of $24 million available heading into free agency period, though they have the likes of Nazem Kadri, Cody Franson, Carl Gunnarsson, Jonathan Bernier and Mark Fraser still to sign. Grabovski spent the early months of the most recent lockout in the KHL with CKSA Moscow and wouldnt rule out the league as an option for his next opportunity, though there figures to be NHL interest with a dearth of quality centremen available. "I need to work harder," he concluded, taking time to thank his teammates, equipment managers and fans, "I need to be smarter, I need to play harder, need to play better and score a lot of goals and do what I do the best."

LOUIS -- Theres no telling how these wacky World Series games will end. TAMPA, Fla. -- Russell Wilson huddled in the locker room with two of his receivers, discussing where the Seattle Seahawks go from here.A 14-5 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers stopped a three-game winning streak that had Wilson and Co. feeling pretty good about the direction of the first-place team.Losing to the Bucs hasnt changed anything, the quarterback said Sunday after being sacked six times and limited to a season-low 151 yards passing and two interceptions.Sometimes you have to have a little struggle to overcome, Wilson said. Were really positive about what we can do. Weve obviously shown it. Weve battled, weve battled and weve battled. They played a little bit better than us. Hopefully next week we can do a better job across the board.Jameis Winston threw touchdown passes to Mike Evans on Tampa Bays first two possessions , before an injury-depleted Seahawks defense minimized the damage the rest of the way.The offense never really got on track, held to 1-yard net passing in the opening half, when Wilson was sacked four times for 19 yards in losses. When it appeared the quarterback might have a chance to rally his team, Jimmy Graham lost a fourth-quarter fumble and the Bucs sealed the victory with their second interception of the day.Its a complete team effort. I thought our defensive continued to fight, even though we were down early, Wilson said. We continued to fight on offense, we continued to fight at the end of the game. Thats the character of men that we have. Theres nobody thats down at all. Were looking forward to the challenge of getting back next week.The Seahawks (7-3-1) were limited to Steven Hauschkas 43-yard field goal and a safety, awarded when Tampa Bay was penalized for holding while blocking for Winston in his end zone.They made their plays and we didnt, said Wilson, who threw for 902 yards, six TDs and zero interceptions during Seattles three-game winning streak.Its pretty simple. Sometimes you make your jump shots, and some days you dont, the quarterback added. Unfortunately today, we didnt hit ours. But we will next time.The Bucs (6-5) have won three straight to climb back into contention for a playoff berth . Besides stopping Seattles winning streak, they remained one game behinnd first-place Atlanta in the NFC South.ddddddddddddIN REMEMBRANCEPlaying just two days after the death of his father, Tampa Bays Alterraun Verner had one of two interceptions off Wilson. The cornerbacks first pick of the season stopped the Seahawks after Wilson drove his team into field-goal range in the final minute of the opening half. The seventh-year pro sobbed on the sideline, where he was embraced by teammates, whove rallied around him.I just knew what his response would have been. He would have been smiling and would have been very, very proud, Verner said. I was definitely thinking about him, and how he would have been reacting.SELECT COMPANYEvans scored on receptions of 3 and 23 yards in the opening quarter and finished with eight catches for 104 yards. The seventh overall pick from the 2014 draft joined Joey Galloway and Vincent Jackson as the only receivers in Bucs history with three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons. He has 73 receptions for 1,020 yards and 10 TDs through 11 games.Mike Evans is elite, Winston said. Hes a superstar.SHERMAN VS. EVANSOne of the most anticipated individual matchups featured Evans against Seahawks CB Richard Sherman, who felt offensive pass interference should have been called on the receivers second TD catch. Sherman complained to an official that Evans grabbed his jersey and then pushed off to gain an advantage.We have a ton of respect (for Sherman). We tried to do some things to get Mike on the other side, with motion and whatnot, Bucs coach Dirk Koetter said. Mike came up big. The only disappointment is we just didnt stay with it good enough in the second half.WINSTON SPARKLESA week after leading the Bucs to a road win over Kansas City, Winston delivered another stellar performance.
