    According to a report by Soap Opera Digest, Michael Graziadei (Daniel Romalotti) is definitely exiting "The Young and the Restless" when his contract expires. Although no final airdate has been provided, castmates Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Peter Bergman (Jack), Joshua Morrow (Nick) and others, already attended a goodbye party in honor of the departing actor on November 30.

    no more killing off characters. Just move to Paris or something like that.

    Have Daniel & Lucy move to Chicago to live with Heather. They could always recast in the future & bring him or all of them back.

    I totally agree with vicsze, that Daniel & Lucy should go be with Heather. I'd much rather watch Daniel & Heather's relationship then, anything with Victor, its the same crap. I FFWD through Victor stuff and Sharon. Even though I love Adam but I wish they fix him Ches I like them pair together. Adam I like that he working for jack but please adam don't fall for your "dad's crap" you know that he's only being nice to you til he gets what he wants and then you won't be family again! I'm still wondering why Kevin didn't ask Nick for help in his tag and grab?

    I really enjoyed Graziadei & Landon onscreen.

    I defintiely think they should have him and Heather hooking up away from all the drama and it leaves it wide open for both of them to come back at some point with Lucy.
    It is sad to see such a core character gone and to kill him off would only cause major storylines that involves everyone, he was too inmportant a character. Leave the door open. Good luck to him, he is amazing!

    I seriously think that Daniel and Lucy should move to Chicago with heather and have the door left open for his return someday!! He will be missed as he was such a great actor!! Maybe have the option for him if he would like that!! Good luck Michael in whatever you decide to do!! Sure hope to see him back on Y@R someday!!

    He could only come back if he got a haircut and shave.

    I think if he has to leave he and Lucy should go be with Heather then they can bring them all three back when Lucy is older and her psycho mother has chased them out of Chicago.

    Love Daniel don't want to see him go

    Love Michael in this part, no one else can do this part justice like he has. And Landen was the first one to ever do any good playing Heather Stevens. Bring them back in a year with Lucy aged and a crazy Daisy chasing after them. The new Shiela. LOL

    Ok where is Lucy how will she return? Daniel should leave Lucy with Phyllis, hope Daisy is not in the picture at all, he should stay where he is & then return for a short episode in him going away with Lucy & will keep in touch with the family, when Lucy gets older she can return age.15yrs & be a nice person, summer needs to be nicer & not so deceitful, Phenn needs to be replaced with someone more interesting & not hateful, enough mischeveness for awhile,Phenn has a problem & this will get him in serious trouble,need to rewrite his part.
