This is true...

Josh Gratton and 2 2nd round picks go back to Phx.

A nice acquisition by Philly. I'd normally say the price of two 2nd-rounders is a little high, but this by most accounts a pretty weak draft. Plus Denis Gauthier will certainly help their blueline. Gotta wonder if this means that maybe Rathje or Chris Therien is on the way out.

FlyerNation, what do you know about Josh Gratton? Seems like he might be a career NHL 4th-liner/AHL guy to me.

With how the Pens typically draft (especially in round 2), I have given them 3 second rounders.

A tough guy. Not that great of a player, doubt he'll ever make it in the game.

I like this deal to, the only downside is Gauthier is a UFA this summer. If he does not resign, then 2 second rounders is alot to give up on a 3 month "rental". I see Philly resigning him unless he wants huge numbers.
