Agreed with regards to Gratton. I'll still never understand how he got so bad. It's like Wayne Cashman totally ruined Gratton. Anyways, you know who would have been a good fit to replace Primeau? Dave Scatchard. The man can skate, he's got good size, and he's reliable defensively. He's the kind of guy that would have really flourished under Hitch.
I know I'll get flamed for this, but another player who could fill Primeau's role on the ice would be Radek Bonk. Yeah, he's doing nothing in Montreal right now, but give him the role that Primeau had and I think he could really flourish. He reminds me a lot of Primeau as well. Someone who was drafted high, but never really lived up to expectations.
