‘What is more troubling than Gragnani’s little ice time is the comparable playing time for Nathan Paetsch. Buffalo’s seventh defenseman for the entire season, Paetsch was supposed to be cracking the top-6 at this point in his career. A season or two ago, Paetsch seemed like the only defenseman other than Brian Campbell able to play positive minutes on the power play. Now the 2001 second-round pick is likely on his way out with Mike Weber ready to play for the big-league club and the time also approaching for Mike Card and Mike Funk to make their way west from Portland into HSBC Arena.’
