Huberdeau or Grigorenko

I read this scenario on some site this morning. I forget where but the idea intrigued me.

This based upon a number of assumptions.

1) The Canadiens get 2nd pick overall this June.

2) Grigorenko isn't picked 1st overall.

3) The Canadiens GM succeeds in convincing the Panthers GM to make the above trade on a one for one basis.

I'm aware that many opinions about Grigorenko say that he's an outstanding prospect (by some even the best in this year's crop) but, nevertheless I believe that there are risks in picking him (Russian factor, Zherdev, etc.)

On the other hand, Huberdeau has shown some very good stuff but, still, a risk remains. He's considered an 8.5C on hockeysfuture so that's pretty good but still shows the possibility of ending up with a second line player.

So, for me, it's a toss-up, with a bit of a lean towards Huberdeau.
