Lightning Looking at Laraque, Gratton

Hoping to add more toughness in the form of a forward to the team before the playoffs, rumor has it lightning GM Jay Feaster is looking at Phoenix's Georges Laraque also former Bolt Chris Gratton. "I still have three or four lines in the water," he said. "You never know because they all have different life. Certainly my Saturday afternoon wasn't planned around making a trade with (Anaheim GM Brian) Burke."
"It definitely isn't a one and done."

According to George Richards of the Miami Herald, the Bolts are indeed in talks with the Panthers about bringing back Gratton. Gratton still has another year on his contract at $1.5 mil.

Laraque has the ability to utilize his tremendous size to create space for both himself and his linemates and is underrated in his ability to handle the puck. He is one of the leagues top enforcers.
