Gringo as his teammates call him is ranked #2 by McKenzie,ISS and by almost every list except Craig Buttons.Grigorenko is a cerebral player that controls the play and gives his teammates sweet passes or he can also unleash NHL quality shots.Dumba is the only player in the same category as Yakupov and Grigorenko,so if they pick someone other than Gringo it would be Dumba.I'm pretty sure Edmonton will want Dumba to run the PP for Nugent-Hopkins,Eberle,Hall and company,which leaves Gringo for the Habs.Timmins isn't the only person making the decisions at the draft and Galchenyuk plays on a team with Yakupov which makes his body of work a little bit suspect IMHO.
