[QUOTE]In Response to McGrattan : 1 year deal : Probably hired just for colton orr, who fights carkner every time they play the sens. someone needs to crack colton orr's head, and phaneuf, too. both are total punks.

BadHab, buddy. Did Phaneuf date your sister or something? You really have a hate on for this guy.
Phaneuf has been playing some good hockey for the Leafs although he's not worth 6.5 million. I was hoping Chara would come over to the Leafs so that Burke can say he used the entire cap for 6 defencemen.....LOL.
I don't think either player are punks, though. Orr doesn't hurt the team when he's playing his 4th line role. He is very effective at what he does. If McGratton suits up against the Leafs this year, I hope he plays a lot of minutes.
Seriously, I think McGrattan's better days are behind him, thought, but I'm glad he's getting a paycheck. He's had a bit of a hard time lately. I hate to see what happens to guys like McGrattan. They do all the hard sledging for teams, then quickly get abandoned when they start to lose fights or the 'next great fighting kid' comes along. It seems to happen to most of them eventually.
Orr, by the way, cleaned McGratton's clock http://www.hockeyfights.com/fights/88601
Your enforcer can't hurt your team when he's out there. Orr can skate, gets the odd goal and plays responsible defense for the most part. I think Thorton does his role well for the Bruins too. I applaud PC for giving McGratton a contract. I hope the guys can scratch out a couple more years....
