Preds waive McGrattan

Feb 26, 2013, 12:40 PM EDT

The Nashville Predators have placed Brian McGrattan on waivers.

McGrattan, 31, only appeared in two games for the Predators this season, averaging 6:17 of ice time.

The team re-signed him to a one-year, $600,000 deal last summer after he appeared in 30 games during the 2011-12 campaign, registering two assists and 61 PIM.

Long known as one of the NHL’s fiercest fighters, it’s possible McGrattan could catch on with a team looking to add toughness to the lineup.

For a better sense of McGrattan’s pugilistic prowess, check out this scrap from last season against Toronto’s Jay Rosehill:

      I am pretty sad. I actually have a McGrattan jersey. Damn.

    I hate Buffalo but I think they would actually benefit from waiving Scott and picking up this guy. Scott is not even feared anymore, I have seen two guys that are about 4 inches or more shorter than him competely dismantle him in a tilly. He plays about 2 minutes a night just skating around looking for a dance partner when he loses most of the time. Completely worthless

    Trust me we don’t want this useless bi*#% in buffalo. I just took a shi* with more talent then Mcgratten.

      Definitely not talented, but if you’re going to employ a guy purely to fight, he might as well be able to beat the piss out of whoever challenges him, no?
