You are correct that he doesn't play RW. It was more of a decision that putting Horcoff at RW would be better than the mediocre RWs that were out there. It also had a bit to do with the fact that Gratton is an extremely good faceoff-man. His offensive production and effectiveness will be reduced a bit, but I still think he's a good 4th line wing here. Admittedly, I know very little about his playing style because I'm a Flyers fan, and I get to see him play basically once a year.
