The Fourth Period

The fourth period reports that the rangers are pursuing Gratton. Ok, now holland better jump and get him. But I dont think he will go after anyone untill dats and hank are signed. What do you guys think? Sign gratton quick? Let him go to the rangers? Or sign dats and hank and forget about Gratton???

Top priority has to be signing Dats and Z, unless he can get him really cheap. If it is anything more than 800,000, I would say wait until the RFA's are signed.

I'd take Zetterberg and Datsyuk over Gratton in a heartbeat. There's other players (not many though) who play a similar style to Gratton out in the market. And it's not like I'm worried about any UFA going to New York and becoming a good player.

why not to take Gratton before Zet and Dats? We really need that size...
Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

anyone who signs with the rangers turns out to be a bust.....lindros, kovalev, bure, kasparitus...the list just goes on and on

There is no way Detroit could, would, or should try to out bid the Rangers for a lazy fourth liner.

There are also a plenty of rumors that the best RSL forward is going to sign with Rasngers. He is Max Suchinski, he played 30 games for Minnesota in 2000/2001, then get back to RSL and had 4 excellent seasons. It would also be a great choice for DRW if THEY FINALLY MOVE!!!

No chemistry. Believe it or not it looks like Sather actually knows what hes doing this time. My only concern if we get Gratton, too many C's Nylander, Straka, Lundmark and maybe Gratton. I guess someone could always switch positions.

Dats and Hank are by far the most important things for Ken to do. Gratton would be nice to get, but at the right price. There isn't going to be as much use for someone to drop the gloves now with the rules changes, what we need are fast players to put the puck in the net.
