Gratchev has the skating ability, reach and hands that might mesh well with Kopitar in a few years. If not we lost a little bit of talent, but its not a suicide trade.
I would be willing to part with Richie for him too. It would be tough to give up a proven player like A Mart or Richie and of course the Rags would have to make it work by adding what they would need to depending on which player they got but I do agree that Gratchev has a solid skillset.
To me though, if we are going to be willing to part with A Mart or anyone else I would rather that we put a package together for a player with a little more upside but that's just me. Gratchev is solid.
