Mikhail Grabovski would be a great fit for the Capitals.
Ideal Fit: Washington Capitals
The Washington Capitals are in dire need of a dynamic top-six center. Brooks Laich is an effective third-liner center, and signing Grabovski would push him out of the top six. Can you imagine the success Grabovski could potentially have with Alex Ovechkin?
Grabovski had back-to-back 50-point seasons heading into 2012-13, but limited ice time by Randy Carlyle stunted his offensive numbers this past season. Here is a look at Grabovksi's production correlated with his average time on ice.

From 2010 to 2013, Grabovski's time on ice dropped nearly four minutes, so it isn't a mystery that he wasn't producing.
He is a great skater with smooth hands and is a dynamic offensive threat. Adding the former Toronto Maple Leafs pivot would help replace Mike Ribeiro and allow the Capitals to contend.
