Gratton to Colorado

The Denver Post reported today that the Avalanche are ‘mulling’ a trade for Gratton. No mention of who they would part with to obtain Gratton, although he was mentioned as taking Serge Aubin’s spot in the lineup. The Avs are apparently trying to fill a gap they perceive in third line scoring (and second line too most likely). While I expect that Colorado will make a deal before March 11, Gratton for Aubin won’t happen. I’ve always considered Gratton overrated, but perhaps a $2mil third line center is just what the Avalanche need…
