Could be retaliation to the Det roit signing.

HelloMyNameIsHi 07-01-2012 08:23 PM

I like McGratten :P.

headsigh 07-01-2012 08:25 PM

AtlantaWhaler 07-01-2012 08:31 PM

Nashville needs somebody to tight Tootoo.

PredsV82 07-01-2012 08:42 PM

two hours later tsn finally gets it on their tracker..

Legionnaire11 07-01-2012 08:43 PM

13/14th forward. But at least we know there's a legit heavyweight ready to dress unlike the rotation we usually go through in the first half of the season. The contract works, the player works.

KevFist 07-01-2012 09:38 PM

It's not a bad signing at all. He's cheap. He fills a need.

preds1 07-01-2012 09:39 PM

Glad to hear. I like him a lot.

AEM6729 07-01-2012 09:57 PM

I like that he broke the news of his own signing via his Twitter account. What a boss.

Did you not watch any Preds games last season???

Anyways, he's back for another year and cheap as hell. Good enforcer to have to play a handful of games.

INDhockeyfan 07-01-2012 10:15 PM

Good enforcer and locker room guy. With Tootoo gone we need a guy like him and he is cheap. 13/14th forward to use when we go up against another enforcer and can play for a few minutes on the 4th line in a pinch if we have an injury. Him and Goose can pummel anybody who wants to try anything against our guys.

His twitter feed is pretty hilarious. Talks a lot about other sports and what sissys they are, and modern warfare....or at least he used to play a lot.

lots of lols.

I wish I could have heard the negotiations for this deal.

Poile- "Hey Brian, we'd like to bring you--"
Ern- "Done."
Poile- "But I haven't even said money or--"
Ern- "1 year, league minimum. Done"

Glad he's back. Seems like a good guy, and size/toughness is never a bad thing.

BigFatCat999 07-02-2012 10:12 AM

Poile: 'We need you to punch Tootoo a lot.'

Ern: 'Done!'

quality post.

Don't understand the signing to be honest. I'll expect him to be the 13th forward most nights.

Duhhhh, it's to beat up Tootoo in all our games vs Red Wings, plus he's a cool locker room guy. Every team could use an enforcer at some point in the season.

ninetynine* 07-06-2012 02:44 PM

Hopefully he gets more games this year, and it's a 1-way contract.

Bruise Bros 2426 07-09-2012 04:22 PM

I ****ing love this guy, and I'm not even a Preds fan. Great signing. Hopefully he sees more games next year for you guys.

No, McGrattan actually understands his role.
