They must be getting desperate if they're turning to Chris Gratton.

At least Columbus didn't give up Keith Ballard for him. (shakes fist at Pierre Lacroix)

In the other thread regarding this subject (which has remained inexplicably unmerged), it is pointed out that this is not intended as a fix for current top-6 center woes. Frankly, I'm not sure what it's for, but Howson has consistently failed to doom this franchise so far so I'm willing to be cautiously optimistic.

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!

He's probably going to be a fourth-line center for us. We're still going to be in the market for a bigger player.

Not sure why adding a big center who is a solid pk'er and a good face off guy for nothing smells of desperation.

This isn't a bad move at all...of re-entry waivers...that's capable depth at bargain basement prices...

Correct.

I agree. If Gratton plays on the 4th line, he's doing it at effectively $625,000. Columbus could do much worse for a 4th line center; if it fails to pan out, he walks at the end of the season as a UFA in a worst-case scenario - otherwise, they could stick him back on waivers and see if anyone else claims him. Either way, they're not getting stuck with any more than half of his remaining salary.

I think this move makes Peca expendable. I seem to recall there was a rumor being floated last week that had Peca on the move.

Just a rumor. If anything, Novotny is the guy that goes.

If it's a trade I think Peca has more value than Novo, but I would be happy with either one being shown the door.
