I'm truly disappointed. There are times when I've felt that Anaheim was a team lacking in some character, or commitment, but I never got that feeling when Derek Grant was on the ice. This trade saddens me. I know that in theory, getting a fourth-round pick (never mind the company in the tub) for a minimum-contract player is a win, but this feels like a double loss: on-ice performance and on-ice attitude. And I haven't heard anything about locker-room conduct that would contradict these values.
Who was the first option to send out there to pull draws on the penalty kill or in the defensive zone in the third period on those rare occasions when the Ducks were nursing a lead?
Unless Murray packages this fourth with the Anaheim third and manages to draft the next Brayden Point with the resulting pick, this trade is a stupidity.
