This was addressed, with regards to Grigorenko vs. Yakupov, in the fallout article linked in the OP. In regards to Murray, He is still a better prospect in our minds as his game is very well rounded in comparison to Mikhail.

- Grigorenko is truly a high end playmaking/goal scoring weapon who uses his reach well.

- Murray contributes offensively with heady passes and quick transitions as well as nice puck composure.

- Grigorenko has given a good effort but looks to have much to learn about defensive positioning or play in his own zone.

- Murray is one of this drafts top defensive d-men, utilizing great defensive zone positioning and reads as well as a quick stick.

- Both have NHL size and skating ability, although Murray has the better stride between the two.

- Grigorenko has a slightly higher NHL ceiling but also a lower bottom end.

With those points taken into consideration, FC has Murray at #2 and Grigorenko at #3 in our rankings this month.
