McGrattan In Camp

Word that the Bruins have invited former Ottawa and Calgary heavyweight Brian McGrattan to camp on a tryout basis. Good news for us cementheads out here but a wee head scratcher for Shawn Thornton, I imagine. Recently signed for two years and widely regarded as one of the more intelligent, capable and modestly talented pugilists in the game, he has to be wondering why the team would want McGrattan around.

Other than for pure entertainment in the pre-season, that is.

McGrattan played in the Senator’s system during Peter Chiarelli’s time there so maybe that’s the genesis of it. Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth, I say. Tune in to those exhibition games and watch out in Providence. Gratts is nothing if not interesting to watch.
