On most occasions I agree with you. McGrattan will still be useful however as an extra skater when energy and toughness are needed.

I was having a discussion with a friend over the weekend and we figured out that there are, at most, 7 teams in the NHL that have legitimate enforcers. Guys who are on the ice for two things and that is to intimidate and fight. Stortini was never a good fighter, so he was really in purgatory. Not really adding anything.
