Both are great prospects IMO -- but none of them will ever become goto players so to speak. Neither really have above avg offensive vision or any other offensive ability that really stands out. But that doesn't mean they won't become very goo players for us down the line.
I think Grachev has the hands to be similar to Franzen in the scoring department, but I'd be disappointed if he wasn't a better passer. Franzen had just 11 assists last year playing for the best team in the league and averaging around 18 minutes of ice time a game. Grachev seems to excel at both passing and scoring, so I think he'll be more valuable in the long run
