That's actually an awesome comparison. Ladd perhaps doesn't have quite the mean streak that Graves did (he was a nasty SOB back in the day), but very similar players overall. I don't like the Linden comparison quite as much, I think Linden was much more of a finesse guy (relatively speaking) than Ladd is.
