I would take a chance on Grigorenko. Maybe his attitude problems are overblown and he compares more to Malkin than Ovechkin attitude-wise.

He also looks already ready to step in the NHL physically and maybe he could grow up to 6' 4".
I haven't heard any knocks on Grigorenko attitude wise...the knocks on him are that he is a perimiter player and doesn't always show up and compete. Lots of young players don't show up each night, but Yakupov is one that does, that's why he is rated higher even 3 inches smaller and similar skill level.
