It was great to see Phoenix Coyote enforcer Brian McGrattan back on the ice doing what he does best. For those of you who don't know, McGrattan had been in an NHLPA supported rehab for substance abuse for the year and this was his first game back. THis bout with a primed, polished elite heavyweight like Jody Shelley is a fine testament to how McGrattan is. No tune-ups, no smaller guys, just the big boys. If he can stay in uniform there is no doubt that McGrattan has the tools to be a top five heavyweight next season.
