Graphs and Eastons are great for wide feet. CCM's are for more narrow pads.
I think you might want to consult this man again. You may have missed something. CCM has always been wider than Nike Bauer.
GraF reg width is narrower than CCM regular width (D) for the most par. However, every model Graf makes is a different fit. It's not like CCM, Rbk, NikeBauer, or Easton where their lines might be slightly different but tha main difference is quality going up and down the line.
Vapors and Supremes fit differently, but the difference between a XXXX and XXV is more in the material than the fit.
gives you a good run down on the models.
Your guy may have suggested a certain Graf model in a wide width that is better for your individual foot. A person with a high instep might want to try a 705, or a person with thick ankles would feel better in a 709.
