Bruins make McGrattan signing official
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins announced on Monday that they have signed enforcer Brian McGrattan to a one-year deal. McGrattan, 29, had travelled with the team to Belfast and Prague while on a tryout.

 

The 29-year-old has played in 182 games between the Senators, Coyotes, and Flames. Though known throughout the NHL as one of the league’s most willing fighters, McGrattan’s most impressive statistic was his 551 penalty minutes in 71 AHL games in the 2004-05 season.

 

The team also placed goaltender Nolan Schaefer on waivers with the intention of assigning him to Providence. Teams were allowed to bring a third goaltender on the season-opening European trip, and as a result the former Providence College netminder traveled with the Bruins.

Shaq won't play Tuesday in Philly

Doc Rivers plans to sit Shaquille O'Neal Tuesday night when the Celtics play at Philadelphia and there's a chance he may decide to rest several more players as the Celtics begin a four-games in five days road trip.

 

Shaq sat out Saturday's practice with soreness in his hip. O'Neal said after Sunday's game with the Raptors that he has arthritis. The move is said to be precautionary and one of the reasons why Rivers in on record as saying it's not realistic that O'Neal will play all 82 games during the regular season.

Meriweather: Moss 'a great teammate'

Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather joined the Dale & Holley show Monday to talk about the bye week and the team's upcoming game against the Ravens. Meriweather said that it was business as usual with the Randy Moss trade and that he had not heard anything about an alleged altercation between Moss and Tom Brady.

 

"It was a team decision, and that was the decision they made," Meriweather said of the trade. "I really didn't have anything to think about. It is what it is."

 

Meriweather said Moss was a big help to him, offering advice and support despite playing on the opposite side of the ball. "To me, he was a great teammate," Meriweather said. "He was a really, really good teammate. When I first started going through problems, he was the first one to come talk to me. He told me to keep my head up and just focus on the small things and get better. He was always the person that always...

Belichick: Don't expect offense to change

Patriots coach Bill Belichick said the team won’t alter its approach to game-planning because Randy Moss is no longer around.

In a Monday afternoon conference call with reporters, Belichick said that even though Moss has been traded to Minnesota, “I think we’ll still be using the same playbook.”

“We’ll go through the same process we go through every week, which is looking at the team we are playing and look at what our options are and try and come up with the best game plan that we can against them. I don’t think it’ll be any different,” Belichick said.

“I mean, we have guys that go in and out of the lineup from week to week based on injury or whatever the circumstances are. It’s not that unusual to game plan with a player one week and then without him next week and then with him the following week. I think we’ll still be using the same playbook....
