Will Gratton Claim Stop Another Trade?

"Center Chris Gratton has been claimed off re-entry waivers today by the Columbus Blue Jackets."

I wonder the claiming of Chris Gratton will affect Columbus' (alleged) pursuit of Jeff Halpern. It might be good for the Lightning to trade him away, especially if they are able to get a decent return, ie. Jakub Voracek or Derick Brassard. It might be difficult to get such a high return for Halpern, but it would be good for the Lightning if they were able to.

2008 draft

One thing the Lightning need to do (or not) at the draft- stay away from Nikita Filatov. It would kill me to see another Russian first round flop, like Alexeev and Svitov, and too many questions surround him to be drafted in the top 5.
