I have ZERO problem with McGrattan in the lineup against teams that will play us physical because he can take a regular shift (~7 minutes/night) and make plays when needed.

I don't disagree that the pure goon fights are a sideshow that serve little purpose, but the addition of Brian McGrattan to our lineup has been a good move this season...
I agree. Best "player enforcer" we've had since Denny Lambert.
