Mike, what are your thoughts on Gratton? I get the impression he’s being oversold. He has that really short offensive peak but for the vast majority of his career was a 30-40 point player. He was used in a defensive role later on but it was more due to size and inconsistent offense that precluded him from scoring line roles; I’ve read he wasn’t cut out for a defensive role and wasn’t that good at it when used that way. He just seemed to be a very disappointing, inconsistent player, and I remember early in his career he was one of my favourites; it seemed he had “poor man’s Lindros” potential. That said, ignoring his potential, does what he did on the ice make him a good pick at this point? I know that he has gone hundreds more picks beyond this point a couple of times…
