Grigorenko is a center,just cause Quebec Remparts list him as RW doesn't preclude the fact he's their first line center.He has scored 32 goals and 40 assists in 49 games while Freddy Roy (Patrick's Roy's son) playing with Mikhail has improved his game to scoring 23 goals and 53 assists in 55 games while his PIM have gone down and he concentrates on hockey instead of fighting and shooting his mouth off.This is the kind of results to expect from the players around Grigorenko,a captain and leader of his pro team in the future no doubt IMHO.Think of all his accomplishments ability to converse in English easily and he wants to be #1 overall in the draft,win a Stanley Cup and make Team Russia for the coming Olympics,his words during the intermission of last Friday's game with St. John's Seadogs and he's almost a year younger than Yakupov.His scoring is Avg.is almost identical to Yakupov's from last season.So don't count him out of the running for #1 overall quite yet,the playoffs still have to be played and the Memorial Cup as well.
I'm aware Grigorenko is a center. I was talking at that point about Galchenyuk vs. Forsberg.
